Visiting Darjeeling Locomotive

In August and September 2009 we were visited by Darjeeling Himalayan Railway locomotive No. 19. The only locomotive from this famous Indian mountain railway to exist outside India, it is privately owned by Adrian Shooter (former Chairman of Chiltern Railways) and normally lives on his private garden railway in Oxfordshire.

The visit of No. 19 was very popular with visitors, and also saw a special Darjeeling gala event and an evening run for staff and friends of the railway.
