The Darjeeling Garratt and the engine it tried to replace
In this book Peter Manning provides detail dimensioned drawings plus 3D CAD ones, of the second Garrattt locomotive built - the ‘D’ class for the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, plus drawings for the ‘B’ class 0-4-0 tanks it was intended to replace.
Whilst a significant development in the evolution of Garratts, the ‘D’ class locomotive wasn’t repeated on the DHR, and the 0-4-0 tanks continue to the present.
With a model of the Garratt now available for 16mm narrow gauge, and drawings and castings available for the ‘B’ class in the larger steam gauges, this is a very useful book for modellers, as well as anyone interested in Garratts in general.
72 landscape format and ringbound pages.
