Sight Seen : Delightful Sikkim - Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

Darjeeling - Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, known affectionately as the toy train, made its first journey along its precipice-topping, 2ft-wide tracks in September 1881 and is one of the few hill railways still operating in India. It's even listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site. Besides its regular passenger service to/from Kurseong, there are steam-powered joy rides during high season. Enthusiasts can see the locomotives up close in the shed across the road from Darjeeling train station.
