Bus problems intervened. We got to the bus stop at 7.45. The first minibus came at 8.30 and was so full we couldn't get on it. The next minibus came at 9.20 and we managed to get aboard but the trip through the mountains was 3 hours so we decamped on the outskirts of Malang and took a taxi to Kebon Agung mill, which was the first due to be visited by Bernd and the group we were joining. They arrived at about 2pm.
Kebon Agung mill no longer uses rail but an extensive collection of steam and disel locos are still in the old shed so we inspected these.
|Preserved loco near mill offices|
|Many of the locos were buried amid clutter|
|Prayer "room" in old loco shed|
|Behind the loco shed|
|Cane loading - a laborious task|
|Locos at Gondanglegi depot|
|Lines of empty loris awaiting delivery|
Here we found that there would be no forther trains to the mill today but we had time to inspect the impressive facilities and a Diema linecar that is stationed there.
|This Diema railcar was brought out of its shed|
