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 :-
