The Railway

The spectacular little line was built in 1879 in order to overcome the formidable journey by the Cart Road from Siliguri to Darjeeling. Franklin Prestige of the Eastern Bengal Railway formed the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway Company to build the 2 foot gauge line which attains a height of 7407 feet at Ghoom from only 500 feet above sea level at Siliguri. The little line attains is height by a complicated series of such reversing stations and spiraling loops, zigzagging across the road whilst the plains and river stretch out beneath your feet. The journey culminates in the famous Batasia Loop with the panorama of Darjeeling and Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest mountain, before you. The toy trains themselves are Victorian gems. Steam hauled locomotives of the B Class, designed and built form 1889, the originals by Sharp Stewart of Glasgow, still ply their way up the mountains.
