Siliguri-Darj toy train to resume its service
Toy train will resume its service from Siliguri to Darjeeling from the Christmas Day, after a gap of four years. “It gives us pleasure to announce that the toy train will resume its journey from Siliguri Junction station and move uphill till Darjeeling (the terminal station) from December 25,” AK Sharma, Divisional Railway Manager of Katihar division of the NF Railways said on Sunday.
“Restoration work on all the damaged stretches has finished. We also ran the toy train on trial basis after completion of the work and have found things to be satisfactory,” Sharma said. Toy train services between Siliguri and Kurseong were stopped in June 2010 following a landslide on the NH 55 at Paglajhora.
