E1060

E1060

E1060 was constructed by Esslingen (5316/1966) although others were built by Nippon Sharyo. These were modern versions of the earlier E10s equipped with Giesel ejectors. This 0-10-0 tank locomotive could work normally or with its rack mechanism switched in. The four outside cylinders were all 450 x 520 mm.  Driving wheel diameter was 1000 mm. Boiler pressure was 14.0 kg/cm2, grate area 1.9 m2 with a heating surface of 77.4 m2 and a superheater surface of 24.2 m2. Overall weight was 55.0 tons. E1060 was preserved in working order at Ambarawa Railway Museum between 1998 and 2008. In the 1970s, most of these locomotives were active at Padang Panjang in West Sumatra. They had a short working life compared to Indonesia's other steam locomotives as they were displaced by rack diesels in the early 1980s.

E1060 was relocated to the new Sawahlunto Railway Museum in West Sumatra in late 2008.
