I wonder how often they have a derailment.

Pretty amazing how much that little locomotive could pull and the rate of speed it was clipping along at.

My thoughts exactly!!

She was doing a bit of a major 'wobble' across some of those none-too-good track sections.


Nice video though.


 Thanks again for sharing, Frank.

I was in Semboro about the same time and it was an interesting operation.  As well as the 29, they had some fireless cookers and mallets.  Took a cab ride out into the fields on an 0-4-4-0 and along the way the 4 wheel tender derailed.  Javanese ingenuity was put to the test.  A bale of bagasse ( crushed sugar cane used as fuel ), was employed as a fulcrum and a log as a lever.  The lift looked good until the front of the tender got stuck on the loco's footplate, leaving a wheelset well above rail height.  Oops.  No amount of fussing, heaving and swearing got the job done.  Thinking they would need to get a crew to help and seeing that the sun was headed down, I made a run for a nearby road and flagged down a bus to get me back to the mill and my car.  Man, those guys were going to be out there some time........   wrong.  As the bus pulled out, I saw the loco merrily heading back with the errant tender still at a jaunty angle and one wheelset still 6" above the rail.  Casual railroading.
