Darjeeling Himalayan Railway's C Class

A Class


The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway C Class steam locomotive used on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway in West Bengal, India. As a complete contrast to the compact 'B' Class, DHR ordered 2 'Pacific' type tender locomotives (with 4-6-2 wheel arrangement) from the North British Locomotive Company in the UK in 1914 for use on the long line from Siliguri to Kishanganj. Once this closed there was little work for them, but both have been preserved in India.
