There is something interesting in Station Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta which has been operated again with the condition that the building was conserved. At last weekend when a group of lovers of history visit the station made CW Koch in 1914, there is the Bon Bon (Locomotive) who had been in one of rail way (spoor) in the station with eight rail double.

PT KA did not forget to reveal the existence of the basement (bunkers) in this building. Suddenly the participants to imagine the possibilities that can be seen in the bunkers of a large station in the north of Batavia. Curiosity driven the participants could not wait to line up into the bunker. After going through a steep narrow passage and, finally looks musty room that flooded.

The water level around the ankle is made participants could search to the three space visible from the entrance to the bunker. Not yet known what the function of this bunker at the station, toward which the bunker continues. Tri Prasetyo, from the Heritage Conservation Center PT KA, explains, it can not do more research before any signal from the field of archeology of Culture and Tourism Ministry and the administration.

When the station began dismantling Tanjung Priok bunkers, also found two spoons made from copper and silver are estimated from the 19th century or early 20th century. “So we do not dare to act further, there is fear of the other objects of value or even destroy the bunker conditions. We await the of the Directorate General of Antiquities, so there is more research,” said Tri.

Spoon could have been a relic of the station had lodgings on the second floor. Many Dutch officials or citizens who arrived in Batavia from the Port of Tanjung Priok. Then they use the railway to the destination. For accommodation as a transit point, the station’s new Tanjung Priok to provide space that serves as a hotel. So migrants who arrive late or wait for the departure of ships can stay there.

It is said that during the existence of the bunker accidentally slammed shut – but data on the function of the bunker at Tanjung Priok Station hard to find, too, the existence of bunkers not listed in the large scale model of the station. The reason why the bunker was a secret of course led to various theories. Some say, it’s likely that the bunker was a long hallway connecting the Port of Tanjung Priok and Tanjung Priok station to send and receive goods forbidden. Say opium.

If in some literature, as well as physical evidence, bunkers are scattered in Batavia, especially in the 1940s, during the second world war, it is not the case with the bunkers at the depot was built at the time of Governor-General AFW Idenburg. The reason, building bunkers look at one with the station building and is located in the building. Generally, bunker in Batavia is outside the main building because it orders to build a bunker in the year 1940.

To find out more about the history of the bunker, where functions and are tipped bunker seems we still have to be patient. Bunker could become a new tourist attraction in Tanjung Priok, particularly of the station. It is expected that this year everything about this bunker could be revealed, the soaking water is also expected to be drawn so that citizens can see themselves into the bunker with three space.

This year is also expected ESS 3201 electric locomotives made in 1926, manufactured Werkspoor, will be placed on such a monumental station as one of the tourist attractions. This locomotive passengers Jakarta – Buitenzorg (Bogor) since the late 1920s until the mid-1970.

The story begins just before the anniversary of Staats Spoorwegen (SS) that to 50 in 1925. At the opening of the Tanjung Priok station in 1925 the electrification project in Batavia, Tanjung Priok, Meester Cornelis (Jatinegara) was also completed. Then to complete the electrification program was also booked a number of electric trains and electric locomotives. One type of electric locomotives ordered the 3200 class of artificial Werkspoor – Heemaf. Designed and manufactured by licenses Werkspoor with Baldwin while electrical equipment manufactured by Westinghouse Heemaf the license.

One of these locomotives were numbered 3201. After the task, it locomotives left just under the tree. Forms in and out of this locomotive is full rust, dirt, scrap metal nearly so.

In August 2006 a group of railway enthusiasts (railfans) incorporated in the Indonesian Railway Preservation Society (IRPS) electric locomotives save ESS 3201 and made monuments. Plan early, this engine will be installed at the station along with the inauguration Beos revitalization of the old town, but eventually the plan was canceled and another plan emerged, these locomotives will be placed in one corner of the Tanjung Priok Station.

The plan is still in the process so that the locomotive is ready to be installed at the new station re-opened itu.ni.
