Darjeeling Toy Train

The old coal train plies rarely, but is being maintained at the station yard. Toy train is presently being pulled by a diesel locomotive.
Tickets are very difficult to get and needs to be booked online on railway booking sites well in advance. Very few seats are available.

Toy train is the best experience I have gained in my life. It is so sweet itself inside. But it's very tough to get it's ticket. So if anyone want to take it's ticket, then please do contact with your hotel manager, s/he will help you to get a ticket otherwise quite difficult. But everyone should ride on toy train once if you visit Darjeeling.

Please note that this review page is specifically for the "Joy Ride" tour to be hauled by steam locomotive from Darjeeling to Ghoom, not the diesel hauled part from Kurseong.

Thankfully I had booked a ticket in advance on the irctc.co.in website for the Joy Ride because the limited number of seats for each train were sold out for the days we were in Darjeeling. This was a fantastic experience, puffing and tooting our way along. The train stops to take on water on the way to Ghoom which gives you a chance to get out and take photos. It also pauses for a short while at the Gurkha Memorial before heading to Ghoom. At Ghoom station there is a good wee museum covering some of the history of the railway and it's well worth a look around (entrance free if you arrive on the Joy Ride). The steam train switches ends here and then heads back to Darjeeling. An excellent way to spend a couple of hours.
