The Indian Hill Railway is loosely based on various scenes on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway in India. Kurseon bazaar, Darjeeling station and locomotive shed, and the Terai (jungle) are all depicted. Originally built by Rob Bennett and Richard Ough in 2000, the layout has since been extended twice. The latest extensions provide extra pointwork that facilitates more flexibility in operation. Examples of all the locos that have hauled trains up the line are likely to be running, and some will be coal fired.
