The International Steam Pages

Java Sugar Steam YouTube Video Clips

My YouTube channel has over 100 video clips of steam locomotives at work in and around Java's sugar mills. Finding the one(s) you want is not easy as apart from playlists, YouTube offers little in the way of an index and this page is an attempt to make it easier to find what is available.

The mills are listed by area in the same manner as my photographic record Sweet Dreams 2, roughly west to east with a separate section for the private mills. Necessarily many mills are not represented, some have only one or two and a few many. It will be updated as new videos are added, as of March 2023, there are some 30 new videos which will be rolled out every week (Saturday 08:00 UK time) and by the time they are all revealed, there may be more. 

If you have some Java sugar material you want showcased and you don't have your own channel then think about using my channel to skip the wait to get established, contact me through the email address at the end of this page.

Most are my own videos, but there are a number by Ray Gardner (RG) and Ross Sadler (RS). My videos and those from Ray date from 1991 onwards by which time many mills had retired their steam locomotives. Ross started earlier (in 1979) and he is slowly converting his cine archive...
