There are many train car shunting activities, especially at the morning and the evening when many trains are departing and arriving at the station. The station doesn't have a locomotive depot, the locomotive depot is located at Sidotopo station located at north-east of the station. Surabaya Gubeng station is located at south-east of the station about three kilometers far. Uniquely these three stations formed a triangle shaped railway, but the railway between Surabaya Kota with Surabaya Gubeng is a double tracked railway, the others are Single Tracks.
