DHRS NEWS UPDATE - 31 MARCH 2015

Following the completion of landslip repairs at Pagla Jhora the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway is now fully open again for the first time in over four years.  

On 10 March a steam-hauled special, chartered by Darjeeling Tours Ltd, was the first such working to cover the full length of the line.
In recent months much preparation has gone into preparing the line for the forthcoming full resumption of public services-new passing loops have been installed, stations re-painted and new information signage boards erected.

Pending the resumption of full public services the current DHR timetable is shown at the Travel Information page.

The DHRS continues its engineering support to the DHR Tindharia Workshops and Director of Engineering, David Mead recently completed a most productive and successful visit there.
A full report will be published in the Society's magazine 'The Darjeeling Mail' and DHRS members will be able to hear more at first hand from David Mead at the Society's AGM at Kidderminster on 20 June 2015.
