PNKA No. C300 19 & B51 24, Tanahabang, 18th July 1973
PNKA C300 Class 0-6-0D No. C300 19 (270hp, one of twenty built by Karl Marx, Works Numbers 263002-021 of 1966) threads its way through the crowds thronging the tracks as it shunts wagons in the yards near Tanahabang station, while 4-4-0 No. B51 24 has stopped with a passenger train from Rankasbetung, before proceeding into the station. The railway was used as a general thoroughfare, with people just wandering around as well as living, working and conducting their businesses on the tracks. When a train came along they just upped sticks for a while and then returned after its passing! Wednesday 18th July 1973. Slide No. 11198.
