A Driver’s eye view Part 1, from NJP to Tindharia!
We have good news at last!! Following the recent filming at the lower end of the line, Part 1 of the Driver’s eye view, from New Jalpaiguri to Tindharia will soon be in post production with the expectation that this will be published by the middle of April.
This will follow the same format and high quality as the highly-acclaimed ‘Part 2’ which covered Tindharia to Darjeeling. Part one will be over two hours long to show virtually the whole route. It is based on the Darjeeling Tours’ charters mainly filmed (pre-Covid) in 2020 with a diesel charter from New Jalpaiguri to Siliguri Junction and a steam charter from there to Tindharia.
As with Part 2, the DVD has been produced by Peter Middleton of Video 125 with the same Indian support crew. This Driver’s eye view is essential viewing for anyone with an interest in the DHR.
We now have the DVD in stock, now dispatched as soon as we receive your order.
The full retail price for Part 1 or Part 2 is £25 for each is DVD or £30 for Blu-Ray but a special offer is available for DHRS members only, see our sales website :-
The Darjeeling Tank Locomotive Trust are delighted to be able to say that, “we have succeeded in our goal of securing 19B along with the two blue carriages for everyone.”
19B was moved to Statfold Barn Railway at the end of June, the two blue carriages followed early July and all are being prepared ready for this summers running at Statfold, along with all the other 2ft gauge locos on site.
Statfold is open to the public Wednesday to Sunday, where 19B can be viewed either on the line or in the museum round house.
