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 last three locomotives were from the Deli Railway in North Sumatra and were never renumbered. The locomotives at Taman Mini were brought here around in the late 1980s and were mostly among the last active in the country. On average they are in a better condition than those at Ambarawa.
