Locomotive data

Much of this is speculative as far as the Hohenzollern trams are concerned - see additional information below this list. The Backer & Rueb engines were seriously underpowered and were withdrawn in or about 1897.

Hohenzollern works list in blue. All locomotives were ordered through Problinggo in Holland with the numbers listed but some interchange of locomotives took place between the Probolinggo and Pasoeroean sister systems in the early days. I can find no record of a Pasoeroean number 10 in the Hohenzollern book which only shows ranges of works numbers allocated ranges of running numbers so these may not have been in sequence, although I have listed them in sequence.

Ir. K. Brouwer provided some corrections but was not certain about the correct sequence of works numbers. It is also likely that the Indonesian records contain errors and some works plates may have ended up on the wrong locos following overhauls or during the Japanese renumbering.

Above & below:  2 views of C2506.

Above: PSSM 17, showing its date in service as 18th December 1900. It became PJKA B1611.

 

Above & below:  The PSSM acquired 2 0-6-0T locomotives from the SS (date unknown), being SS 506 and 516. These were renumbered PSSM 6 & 7, replacing two Hohenzollern trams which had been tranferred to sister line PbSM. Number 6 was named LOUISA at some point, being the only one known to have a name. It later became PJKA C2201. In the picture below it is coupled to a Hohenzollern Tram, later to become PJKA B16 class.

Above: PSSM 6 Louisa.
