Most Iron Dinosaurs in Java got scrapped. A very good representative selection came to be preserved albeit as static exhibits.

Click here for a full list of preserved Indonesian main line steam locomotives.

Or specifically:

However, there were a few more scattered around Java in a variety of condition....

B2204 at Tegal - since thought to have been scrapped.

B5203 also at Tegal - since thought to have been scrapped.

I do not have a current full list but it would have to include:

C1101 and C1102 at Kertosono - very derelict, probably now scrapped

C28 at Jatibarang - derelict

C24, C28 and D52086 at Purwokerto - derelict

C2801, C1119, TC1004 and TD1001 at Karawang - very derelict and since stolen by scrap thieves

More information would be welcome....
