Caption - Indonesian Railways (PNKA) 3 foot 6 inch gauge wood burning class B50 2-4-0 B5004 (Sharp Stewart 2936/1880) at Ponorogo station with the early morning departure to Madiun on the mainline in September 1982. Over a 100 years old and still going strong their longevity was testament to their design and manufacture. These very basic locos with their low axle weight monopolised the branch trains which were formed of goods wagons converted for passenger accommodation.
