Barely there but still operating - 2ft 4in gauge in Indonesia
Author: LTCerny

For fans of near-derelict branch lines that have been overgrown and neglected and trespassed upon for other uses - but are still operating, a network of 700mm gauge sugar-cane railroads in Indonesia should be of interest.  A fan has posted dozens of videos showing the almost-constant problems of trying to operate over these lines.  Just search for "Rohman Channel" on Youtube.

I looked at several Roman Channel videos and found them very interesting and entertaining.  That cane railway system is something else!  Cane season is only three to four months long, so during the eight months of dormancy, Mother Nature takes over the right-of-way big time!

Thanks for your comments.  For others going to look, remember it's "Rohman Channel" wth an "h".
