Toy trains to soon welcome passengers again in Darjeeling

Northeast Frontier Railway is all set to resume Darjeeling railway toy train service. The officials of NFR have started visiting the routes to keep a tab over the recent developments to resume toy train service. The officials are awaiting government nod to resume the service. GM of NFR, Sanjive Roy said, "We are all set. All our coaches, locos, workshops, staff including tracks especially for joy rides, are ready. We are waiting for the state government's clearance. Due to the landslide between Siliguri to Darjeeling, we are not able to start the direct services, but once we get clearance, we can resume the joy ride services." Toy Train services have been suspended since March this year because of the Covid-19 induced lockdown.
