E1060 The E1060 in Ambarawa, a long way from its home in West Sumatra. It was taken to Ambarawa, repaired and made operable again in 1997, but it is not possible to run the locomotive on the rack line.

BB20326 BB20326 with a Solo-Semarang mixed train in Gundih station. The BB203s are similar to the CC201s, but they are A1A-A1As instead of Co-Cos.
BB30129 BB30129 with the Kahuripan, an economy class train from Bandung to Kediri, in Solo Balapan station.
BB30134 The BB30134 hauling a freight train loaded with fertilizer east of Solo. The locomotive has the modern style cowcatcher. Compare it to the older style on the BB30129.
BB30311 The trains from Jakarta to Rangkasbitung and Merak are usually hauled by BB303 or BB306s, like the BB30311 pictured in Jakarta Kota station. Note the anticlimber plates along the hood.
BB30608 BB30608 passed Gambir station in Jakarta with a dining car bound for Kota. Note the anticlimber plates around the hood, like those on BB30311.
CC20015 The CC200s are the first diesel locomotives in Indonesia, built by GE in 1953/4. The CC20015 was pictured after more than 40 years, in Cirebon depot, still in use for local mixed trains to Cikampek.
CC20137 CC20137, from the first batch of the CC201s, on the head of a freight train in Solo Balapan freight yard. These early CC201s have larger radiator air intakes than the later ones, and they have no multiple unit capability.
