About Darjeeling Himalayan Railway B-class locomotive by Ties

Whether it’s pulling a freight train up a steep & twisty railway in the Himalayas, a passenger train on a tourist railway, or sitting on the desk of a LEGO® train fan, this odd looking steam engine will feel right at home.

This model is based on the DHR B Class locomotives of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, where some of these 100+ year old locomotives can stil be found working. I’ve always been fascinated by these weird looking engines, and designing and building one in LEGO® form is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

Despite its small footprint, the locomotive packs in a lot of details and interesting building techniques. The locomotive is roughly 20 studs long and 6 studs wide (with some details protruding to 6,4 studs wide), and contains 369 parts. The display is 36 studs long and 14 studs wide, containing another 317 parts.

This model was originally built as an entry for Series 1 of the BrickLink Designer Program.
