The declining sugar cane railways of Java, Indonesia, still host a wide variety of elderly, exotic colorful steam engines in both the cane fields and the mills. They also have a variety of diesel “critters” working hard. Steam from O&K, including unique inside frame geared Luttermoller’s, Jung, Ducroo & Brauns, BMAG, the last fireless loco’s in Java and others. The little engines are worked hard, often brutally so, and some of the exhaust noise is awesome!. Water Buffalo are used in the cane fields to haul cane wagons to the “main line”. Plus you’ll ride on the engines, be chased by a train, and see some local life, including lots of curious kids!
This is a Highball Productions best seller.
