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 The Backer & Rueb engines were seriously underpowered and were withdrawn in or about 1897.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.
