PG Wonolangan, PG Gending and PG Pajarakan Friday 20 July 2012

Today we left Malang and headed to Kedawung Mill where we arrived too late to see the empty train crossing the State Railway. We checked out the loco shed and then found a field train. We watched empty loris being delivered onto temporary track.

We then intercepted an empty ash train returning to the mill yard.

After lunch, we saw all the other locos in the mill yard with the exception of the Baguley RUHAAK which we were told had been transferred to Assembagus - although we actually later found it at Wringinanom.

We then went on for a short visit at Gending which is a 600mm gauge mill. Here three diesels were in use but nothing was on the field lines. We hope to catch up with some field line action tomorrow.
