TC1008

TC1008 was constructed by Hartmann (4417/1920). It was originally Staats Spoorwegen 508T. This 0-6-0T had two outside cylinders 240 x 340 mm with driving wheel diameter of 660 mm. Boiler pressure was 12.0 kg/cm2, grate area 0.5 m2 with a heating surface of 19.5 m2 and a superheater surface of 9.1 m2. Overall weight was 12.7 tons. TC1008 is preserved outside Bandung station. These 600mm gauge locomotives worked the branches around Cikampek and Karawang in West Java until the early 1970s, the other 600mm branch at Ambulu in East Java having closed rather earlier.
