19B and the DHRS position

It is vital that we find a way of attracting younger members to the DHRS, with 19B, DTLT and Statfold Barn Farm, a permanent base for 19B, this will be the place for Members to view the loco either in the museum roundhouse or running along the tracks.

Such a rallying point would be a huge asset and 19B would be exactly what we need, although 19B is indeed very famous among some railway enthusiasts, the majority have never seen it. At Statfold, the locomotive will be much more accessible to the public than it ever could be at ‘The Beeches’ and any visitor taking an interest gets pointed towards the DHRS.

Please go to the DTLT website: www.darjeelingtank.org.uk were lots more information and forms are available to help with the financial upkeep of the loco.

This represents a real opportunity – to be part of the story of a genuine DHR tank locomotive from Sharp Stewart, Glasgow in 1889.
