Mike's Picture of the Week 2015/43

Impresssive Indonesian Railways 2-12-2T no. F1023 at Solok in West Sumatra taken during December 1978 according to the Kodachrome slide mount.
There were 28 members of this class - Hanomag x 16 and Werkspoor (Amsterdam) x 12 - and F1023 was built by Werkspoor with works no. 421 for JSS (Javaansche Staats Spoorwegen) in 1917 entering service as their no. 823.
Apparently the Whyte name for the 2-12-2 wheel arrangement is Javanic.
