The Darjeeling Himalayan railway passes along Sa-ngag Choeling Monastery in Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. The narrow guage toy train started in 1881, connecting the hill town to 'New Jalpaiguri' in the plains. The short steam engine hauled joy ride between Darjeeling and Ghum is a popular draw with the tourists. The entire route is now covered using new diesel locomotives. On 5 Dec. 1999, DHR was inscribed on the World Heritage list by UNESCO.
