Darjeeling Himalayan Railway,  West Bengal, India

The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, known affectionately as the Toy Train, made its first journey along its precipice-topping, 2ft-wide tracks in September 1881 and is one of the few hill railways still operating in India. It’s even listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. Besides its regular diesel and steam service to/from Kurseong, there are joy rides during high season that leave Darjeeling at 8am, 10.40am, 1.20pm and 4.05pm for a two-hour steam-powered return trip to Ghoom.
