Friday 6 August – Solo to Tegal via Sragi

Today was a long transfer trip but we managed to get in a good return visit to Sragi mill.
Our tour leader, John Raby, deep in conversation with the security man just before we left the hotel this morning.

Becak drivers awaiting trade at the hotel gates.

A Chinese shrine close to where we ate lunch.

Crane driver's view high above the scene at the unloading station.

Nowhere else in the world can you see five 600mm gauge industrial steam locomotives all at work at the same time and the same place. There were eight in steam here once again.

Only mad dogs. Englishmen, and small children go out in the midday sun.

Quite a slow day with the mill broken down but there is still work to be done and cane shifted.
