I do get the fact that's it's an piece of history...but I seriously think that this toy train has passed it's shelf life. Darjeeling has only one main road...and if you have stayed there for 2-3 days you would have seen that road and all the views from there many many times. This train track is also along the road...

The train passes through the city traffic for almost half of the route. If you sit near the engine, get ready for heavy noise, steam and pollution

Darjeeling is full of natural beauty we all know. Again Toy Train is the most amazing heritage at Darjeeling. It's the only coal engine train live there. The wooooo whistle is just amazing that when it runs, it informs everyone of its proud history. It's equally attractive to all aged personnel travelling to Darjeeling. It takes almost a whole day...
