BB1012 was constructed by Hartmann (3092/1906) although others were built by Schwartzkopff. It was originally Staats Spoorwegen 512 and later 344. This 0-4-4-2T Mallet had two outside cylinders 300 x 510 mm (high pressure) and two outside cylinders 460 x 510 mm (low pressure) with driving wheel diameter of 1106 mm. Boiler pressure was 12.0 kg/cm2, grate area 1.5 m2 with a heating surface of 101.4 m2. Overall weight was 44.1 tons with 36.9 tons available for adhesion. BB1012 is preserved at the Ambarawa Railway Museum having been based at Ambarawa at the time the branch closed to normal traffic. In the 1970s most of this class remaining were based at Bandjar to work the branch to Cijulang although one example was to be found at Rangkasbetung and was the last of the class to work.
