About Toy Train

Remember the evergreen hit song ‘Mere Sapno Ki Rani'? Yes, the scenic beauty and the running train scenes shot in the video are of Toy Train in Darjeeling. A World Heritage Site now, Darjeeling Himalayan Railway was something of a technological marvel back in the late 19th century. The train tracks rose from the sea level to a whooping height of 7545 feet in just 70 Km. The zig-zag routes, interesting turns, reverses and loops attract many tourists to this attraction in Darjeeling. You can hop on the train that passes through narrow gauges and provides a joyful experience. Toy Train has a small steam engine that pulls the coaches on the steep mountains. You get to view breathtaking view of the valleys and the hills while taking the ride. It moves at a snail’s pace, and the local kids are often seen hopping on and off while the train is moving.
