Hi Vikasji,

You have come on wrong forum. This is Matheran forum and you are asking question about Darjeeling.

OK now I try to reply to your query.

Joy ride is a travelling in toy train. Such toy trains or mini trains are available in Matheran and Darjeeling. Presently, the toy train does not run from NJP to Darjeeling. But it runs from NJP to Ghoom which is at very short distance. Tourists can travel on that and enjoy the ride.

Joy Trains

The toy trains run daily on a return trip from Darjeeling to Ghum. Trains leave Darjeeling at 1040hrs and 1320hrs.

Each train has two first class coaches. The train stops at Batasia Loop for 10 minutes and for 30 minutes at Ghum. Fare is Rs.240. Only return tickets are sold.

NJP - Darjeeling narrow guage trains are not in operation. You can avali toy train between Darjeeling and Karseong also, it starts from Darjeeling at 09.15 and comes back at 16.00.
