India > West Bengal > Darjeeling

April 2011

I’d heard so much of the delightful Toy Train of Darjeeling, that one fine spring weekend Mr Alan Bligh and I found ourselves in the Indian Himalaya, after flying into Kolkata, an overnight train to New Jalpaiguri and a harrowing car ride up the mountains to Darjeeling … yes, Planes, Trains & Automobiles! Alan is a true-blue train buff, while I am … ermmm …  a pseudo one, but whatever it is, we had a swell time with the famous Toy Train.
