Interesting series of programmes titled "Indian Hill Railways" on
BBC4 over the last three Sundays.

In the one on the Nilgiri Railway it stated that the Indian government
had given approval for four new steam locomotives to be built.
What is the chance that DLM would get to build these locomotives?

The programme said they were to be built in India. Whether that's going to be a DLM design built under licence is a good question - the DLM website has an artist's impression of a big rack tank loco that looks just like a modern version of the current SLM Nilgiri fleet, which I presume is proposed by DLM for this line.
