A well detailed model of the legendary B class. These locomotives have been valiantly climbing the 50 mile long Darjeeling Himalayan Railway on a daily basis for over a century. The 2 foot gauge railway climbs nearly 7000 feet and twists, even spiralling to achieve this. Although tea has been the major commodity carried on the railway, it is still used as an all purpose railway – a school train is still run – steam hauled of course!
The model follows all the usual Roundhouse practices with it’s simplified Walschaerts valve gear controlling free running slide valves. In addition to the normal steam fittings, the B class also has a level gauge and sight glass fitted as standard. To allow access to the cab, the roof hinges to one side. The amount of detail included on this model is high and imitates the cluttered look of the real work- horse.
The model is gauge adjustable (32mm gauge is scale) and available as manual or radio control.
Couplers are centre buffer, which can be removed if a prototypical drawbar is required.
Colour choice – Darjeeling blue or any of the Roundhouse colours.
The Gauge is adjustable.
