A Driver’s eye view from Tindharia to Darjeeling!


At last. A DVD offering extensive coverage of the DHR, mainly taken from the front of the locomotive. For the first time ever, video production company Video 125, in association with the DHRS, has produced a Driver’s eye view of the Railway. This will be published in two parts: part 1 - New Jalpaiguri to Tindharia, and part 2 - Tindharia to Darjeeling.

Part 2 is available now, and was filmed on board ‘B’ class locos hauling the steam charter train on its second day, starting at Tindharia and continuing to Darjeeling.
Much of the fascinating history of the line is in Jonathan Kydd’s narration. Written and produced by Peter Middleton, edited running time 2 hours 24 minutes.

For those with a strong interest in the DHR, this DVD is essential viewing.

The full retail price is £25 for a DVD or £30 for Blu-Ray but a special offer is available for DHRS members only, see our sales website :-
