Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

A great video showing this iconic railway and some of the locomotives running on it.

The lines crosses the hill-cart road over 180 times and quite often there are fender benders between the train and road traffic.

Seeing the guys on the front frantically sanding the rails as the loco goes around 44' radius curves is quite amusing.

Some interesting info on the future of the railway.

A good video to watch even if you've seen it or something similar before.

I look forward to seeing this. I've been on this and it's quite a trip thirteen hours up (if your lucky) and eight hours coming down. It's one of the few train trips I've been on that you can get on and off while the train is still moving, go to a shop buy something and get back on.
