DHR revamps 80 km toy train route

The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR) authorities are revamping all stations in the 80-km route of the toy train in a bid to highlight the same as a prime tourism destination.

“We have started the revamp of all 14 stations that fall along the 80 km route of the hill railway from New Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling,” said the Divisional Railway Manager, Katihar division, Arun Kumar Sharma.

The refurbishment of all the 14 railway stations of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, which enjoys a World Heritage site status from UNESCO, has started with Sukna station, 10 km from here, where signboards have been put up in blue and yellow. The boards show the name of the station, distance to other stations and direction, besides informing passengers about the UNESCO world heritage status of the toy train.
