It is a good news for the tourists visiting Darjeeling as the toy train between New Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling will resume its services on a regular basis next month onwards.
The decision of running the toy trains between the NJP and Darjeeling brought joy to those who could not enjoy the ride for a long time. The visitors would be able to enjoy the scenic beauty of the hills while riding in the toy train. For last few months the services between the two stations was temporarily suspended, as an engine developed technical problems.
The problems in the engine have already been solved and trial runs are being conducted.
Presently, the service is available thrice a week. There is another engine which is being used for running a train.
As a result ,the service cannot be extended to the visitors throughout the week. Darjeeling Himalayan Railways had to manage to provide the service with one engine and that is why the visitors could enjoy the ride only in three days a week.
