Owner description: A spectacular narrow gauge steam railway is still operational.
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

The train track is right along the Road from Dhoom to Darjeeling , except for Baatasha park holt. So No Scenic beauty along the way as one witnesses in Ooty.
It is quite expensive too, doesn't worth the money. We cancelled our tickts on realising this.
Baatash garden is covered in city tour too.

One of the identities , also UNESCO world heritage . Good view on a nice clear day . Not to many activities enroute. Goes up to Ghoom and then returns . Railway station is undergoing major uplift with addition of basic passenger facilities and pictures of toy train is something not to be missed

My Toy train experience had been wonderful on my recent trip to Darjeeling. Riding this train would give you true sense of authentic steam engine experience and will make you think of British engineering of those days.

However there are few things that I didn't like is their staff behaviour. They may be competent in their respective jobs but they are not really helpful in terms of giving you right directions in regards to buying a ticket or asking for a train timings.

The management should raise the standard of professionalism and usage of technology slight more.This will allow the station more tourist friendly. At Least stations should have electronic notice board which would allow passengers to keep update about next train timings or any train cancellation.

Our Engine was called Whistle Queen, and did a brilliant job of getting us from Darjeeling to Ghoom and return. The amosphere is very special, with all the steam and the whistling from the engine. The narrow track is right in between the small stalls and the road, so you can look straight into people's shops, being it a carpenter, car mechanic or fruit & vegetable seller. There is a short stop at the Batasia Loop, next to a beautiful garden with a War Memorial to Gorkha soldiers. In Ghoom there is the opportunity to visit a railway museum whilst you wait for the train to return to Darjeeling. In Darjeeling railway station you can buy souvenirs, like mugs and postcards to remind you of this wonderful experience. You also have the opportunity to look at some of the other engines in the engine shed and take photos if you so desire.
