The Incredible 'B' Class
At last, the definitive story of Darjeeling's 'B' Class Locomotive

The history, build details and operating practices, and it includes detailed plans for model makers too. It expands considerably on the knowledge base we have from previous publications and will prove to be the definitive work on this iconic class of locomotives which have worked on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway since 1889! Written by David Churchill, probably the world’s foremost authority on Darjeeling Locomotives, it balances diligent research with information from the DHRS archive and the support of friends with specific expertise. The book also covers the locomotives initially delivered to the Raipur Forest Tramway and those subsequently sold to Coal India to work at Tipong in Assam. No-one with an interest in the DHR or the surrounding area should be without it.
