Toy train in Darjeeling is one of the eye catching attraction. There're 2 options, diesel and steam engine, you can select 1 of your choice. It provides an excellent view of Kanchenjunga range. One of the must try option in Darjeeling.

This is a Must Do activity while in Darjeeling. The experience is very nice. Our plan was to go to NJP from Darjeeling via Toy Train. Unfortunately this train was cancelled due to road damage. But the joy ride experience was awesome...
