We begin our journey at Siliguri, not quite the start of the railway, but it is the location of the engine shed, and an Indian Rail station, so there are 3 gauges, broad gauge, meter gauge and the two foot Darjeeling. The railway crosses Hill Cart Road 177 times, and rises 6874 feet to the summit at Ghum. Kanchenjunga, the second or third highest mountain in the world. You’ll take a ride on the train, see some of the scenery and people as well as seeing the trains in action. And for a bonus, you’ll see the sugar mill at Riga in Bihar province, its 0-8-0T, along with ox carts and kids.
