    Look carefully at the signal bridges. These are Pennsylvania position light signals. The Long Island Railroad was once a PRR subsidiary and the old signals are still used today.

    Actually that Papa Ron's Pizza used the old waiting room and ticket counter of former Purwokerto Timur station, and because the whole building is still owned by Indonesian Railways due to its status as former railway station, the Papa Ron's Pizza itself leased the building to Indonesian Railways's Property Management Bureau.

    FYI: the rear part of former station building that houses Papa Ron's Pizza outlet and other shops functions as the dormitory for employee of Indonesian Railways that worked in the Purwokerto division. Although most of the rails in the former Purwokerto Timur station has been dismantled in 2019, but some of them are still intact there (though it has been covered by wild grass and trees that grows some times after the complete abolition of that station in year 2007).

    Another "not an active one but worth to share":

    https://goo.gl/maps/GhpkysgMk2PyzwNo6

    This is the February 2021 shot of southern side of Yogyakarta station, with the Krupp-built diesel locomotive D301 22 (2010-style number: D301 61 09) is preserved right in front of the station entrance. This locomotive was one of 80 units of D301 series hydraulic transmission diesel locomotives ordered by Indonesian Railways for Java divisions in early 1960s, with the main intention was to replace worn-out steam locomotives (especially those that are tank locomotives) on switching and branch lines duties. However, with the closure of branch lines and the usage of large mainline diesels like CC201 (GE U18C) or CC203 (GE U20C) on switching duties at stations, these D301 locomotives are now considered as "on the verge of extinction". Luckily some of remaining locomotives are still used on switching duties (despite limited to workshops or some of depots only), and even one unit (D301 24) is now employed as one of the attraction at Ambarawa Railway Museum, pulling tourist train using classic mid-size coaches on Ambarawa - Tuntang section of the Ambarawa Line.

    (the D301 22 itself has been put on display since year 2019)

    There is another engine in Aryadwi's post earlier;
    https://www.google.com/maps/@-3.7087...7i16384!8i8192

    ...and there is another LIRR engine from JCitron's perspective on the NYC freeway (LIRR 509)
    https://www.google.com/maps/@40.6988...7i16384!8i8192

    Anyway,

    That's another CC202 (EMD G26MC-2U) like the 3 units near to camera, and because it was captured running as a single engine up there I could assume that the locomotive was undergoing switching movement at Tanjung Enim Baru sub-depot.

    And here is another post from me:

    https://goo.gl/maps/BuWhtiSsjZVUxFsU7

    In this March 2021 shot, CC201 100 (GE U18C) of Bandung depot is seen here pulling Greater Bandung Area local train with LHF position (thanks to the availability of two controls in a single driver cab). While the local train itself runs between Padalarang and Cicalengka, there are some trains that serves Padalarang - Cibatu and Purwakarta - Cibatu, with the two routes are possibly extended to Garut station once the Cibatu - Garut section of Cikajang Line returns back to regular operation after more than 35 years of closure.

    [EDIT] I just found another new shot:

    https://goo.gl/maps/yocrRUoXwZvrmoEd6

    The same type of train, same type of locomotive and same LHF position, but with different engine and different direction. CC201 97 leads the Padalarang-bound Greater Bandung Area local train into Bandung station, with the 3rd class coaches are mainly composed of those built by RÁBA (Hungaria) in 1966, though there is a domestic-built ones (introduced 2009) and one built by GOSA (Yugoslavia) back in 1978. The rearmost one was modified several years ago to transform it into seat car equipped with diesel generator for generating electricity.

    In front of the Great Northern Engine House:

    In BNSF green and black: 2396 and 2723 and 4335 pulling attached to an inspection train.

    Here's a better view of the inspection train:

    There is an ATSF peeking out from behind, but can't see the numbers from this distance.

    That does appear to be a sand tower. It's at the end of some fueling racks, so I'm assuming this is a big division type yard where engines are serviced and switched out. I agree, that is one huge sand tower!
