This Roundhouse locomotive is of the famous Darjeeling B Class locomotive. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway is probably one of the most famous narrow gauge railways in the world. Situated in India, this engineering masterpiece which rises a total of 6,850 feet over it's 50 mile length, was constructed between 1878 and 1881. The railways main motive power were the well known class 'B' 0-4-0 well tank/saddle tank engines designed by Sharp Stewart & Co of Glasgow. Between 1889 and 1929 the DHR purchased a total of 33 of this class of locomotive from Sharp Stewart, North British Locomotive Co and Baldwin Locomotive Works as well as building 3 in it's own workshops, and locomotives dating back to 1892 are still in use today. The Roundhouse class 'B' is typical of the locomotives that are currently in operation on the railway and features a wealth of detail to augmen the legendary Roundhouse performance and reliability. It is part of the Roundhouse Classic range. It is available for either manual or radio control (+ £200). This model has adhustable wheels for 32 or 45mm.

Gas

Ordinary Butane or Iso-butane gas (as used in gas cigarette lighters) is the preferred fuel, though for economy, the larger canisters as used for blowlamps or camping stoves etc. are better (we do stock these at £3.50 each or 3 for £10 however they are not available to be sent via post or courier). The larger canisters have an EN417 threaded self sealing valve on top and require a special adapter (which we stock - see here) to couple up to the filler valve on the locomotive. Mixed gases, i.e. Butane with a proportion of Propane mixed in, are available, and may be used on current models if straight Butane is unavailable. These come in a variety of mixes ranging from 90/10 to 60/40 with one of the most common being 70/30. The figures refer to the proportions of the mix i.e. 70/30 contains 70% butane and 30% propane. If using mixed gasses, always choose the one with the largest proportion of butane.

Water

These locos are fussy things. Tapwater in softwater areas is acceptable but in hardwater areas in can lead to limescale in the boiler and pipework. De-ionized water removes zinc from brass fittings so isn't good. Purified water is a tricky one, as it is not always clear how purification has taken place. Shops that sell it will variously tell you it is de-ionized, or distilled. If you can't be sure that it is distilled, don't use it. De-humidified water good as is deep freezer ice. Distilled water is the best. Unfortunately, its hard to get hold of.  If buying distilled water, be very sure that it actually is. Some retail outlets will sell 'purified' or 'de-ionized' water. Another soloution is filtered rain water using filters, which we stock also (see here). Rain water can not be stored for more than a few weeks.

Full instructions are included for steaming.
