The Anatomy of:- The Darjeeling Garratt and the Engine it tried to Replace
A history of both the Garratt and the B Class locomotives used on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway
By Peter Manning
Published by Peter Manning Design & Drafting
74 pages, A4 size landscape format, card cover spiral bound
In the same format as the popular "The Anatomy of a Garratt", this book covers the history of both the Garratt and the B Class locomotives used on the DHR. The book includes details of the construction of both locomotives and a superb selection of accurate scale drawings mostly in full colour. Drawings on the B Class is shown both as constructed by Sharp, Stewart from 1888 onwards, and as revised by North British in 1914.
Like its predecessor, it contains numerous sub-assembly diagrams from various aspects, shown in both complete form, and as cut-aways showing the interior workings.
