Steam locomotives of the Perusahaan Negara Kereta-Api (PNKA) were numbered according to the Japanese system, with a letter to indicate the number of powered axles followed by two digits for the class (10-49 tank, 50 upwards tender locomotives), then the individual number. The locomotives at Ambarawa were brought here around 1977 at a time when steam was still in widespread use on the island of Java. Therefore, they were not always the best examples available.
