Darjeeling Locomotive 19B

The Darjeeling Tank Locomotive Trust are delighted to be able to say that, “we have succeeded in our goal of securing 19B along with the two blue carriages for everyone.”

19B is at Statfold Barn Railway with the two blue carriages and has been used last summer at Statfold, along with all the other 2ft gauge locos on site.
Early in 2024, 19B will be having it’s 10 year overhaul, hoping that it will be running again this summer and may not be viewable whilst in the workshop.

Statfold is open to the public (see their website) where
19B maybe viewed either on the line or in the museum round house.

Statfold Barn website is at
