PT Bakrie, North Sumatra Rubber and Palm Oil Plantations (<a target="_blank" href="http://www.bakriesumatera.com">http://www.bakriesumatera.com</a>)

Perhaps the last rubber light railway of Sumatra is still in use

near Kisaran (south of Medan) in North Sumatra. There are

still two daily trains on 700 mm to collect the natural rubber

from the plantations, leaving the factory between 12 and 1 p.m.

and returning four ours later. Still in use is also the 1067 mm

connection with the state railway PTKA.

Reception at the head office in the town of Kisaran was

very, very friendly, and the permission for taking pictures

free granted. Parts of the plantations had been converted

to palm oil and are served by means of trucks.

I had been visiting the factory on 4th August 2008 and found

the following locomotives :

In use : 9 (Ruston Hornsby 425331), 11A (Schoema 4872),

15 (Schoema 4713) and the 1067 mm Loco 16 (Schoema 4950)

Out of use : 12 (Diema 4140) Overhaul : 14 (Schoema 4438)

Dumped : 7 (Ruston Hornsby 349498) , 10 (Ruston Hornsby 441569)
