Recently I was on a short vacation to the Darjeeling hills and could not resist a ride on the DHR.

and is it always in steam? We saw the TV series on Indian railways and they all look very impressive, but health and safety does seem to be ignored!!

You should make a model of the steamers, Paul. It's always been one of my favorites. Love those headlights.

Roundhouse have one already Bill.

The diesels are just as interesting! Laughing

Excellent quality pictures Paul. Don't skimp on the quantity..... Wink

It' not just the railway that is fascinating but the whole life surrounding it.

Yes they do, and it looks like a great model, but I was hoping for one closer to my price range (and it need not be live steam).
