Yep, a couple of times. Last time 3 years ago.
It's a very basic economy class train, which means not comparable to second class in western Europe but more basic.
Trains are very slow, 3 hours in my memory, very full and have compartments with 2 x 6 tight seats but occupied by at least a few more. Also many people who cannot even find a seat. Nothing special on this track. It takes some time to get out of of the city of Surabaya, then on to Sidoarjo. It's nog the most appealing track.
Costs are a few Rupiah only of course. The profit is you arrive in the centre of Malang close to hotels and so on.

January 2011 I arrived from Jakarta in Surabaya by train. I hoped to catch a connecting train to Malang, But therefor I had to switch to another train station. Everyone I asked advised me to take an "ojek" to the central bus station and to leave by bus from there by bus to Malang. Reasons: no direct interconnecting microlet between one Surabaya train station and the other. Moreover trains to Malang ran not frequently and buses did.
I took the "ojek" (12.000 rupiah), the bus (30.000 rupiah) and safely arrived in Malang one hour and a half later.
