1/3 Scale Darjeeling Himalayan Railway B-Class Steam Locomotive in 7.25" gauge
This beautiful locomotive was built by John Heald of Rotorua, New Zealand. In this video we take the B-Class out for a typical day at the track, including a sequence of loading the engine onto a custom made trailer towed behind a Honda Jazz (Fit) with CVT.
Then it's off to the beautiful River Edge Park Railway in Whakatane, New Zealand. We also take a look at stability of this remarkable locomotive under high speeds using on board cameras.
Special adjustable Danly coil springs prevent the locomotive from porpoising; the leaf springs are dummy and just for show.
