Workers are using a mechanical lift to raise the rear end of steam locomotive ­#902 "Victor", in the Darjeeling train yard.­

Because of the heavy weight of the steam engine, three workers must put their weight together on the long steel bar they use with the lift.­

The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, locally known as the "Toy Train", is a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge railway that runs between New Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling (India).­ It is still operated by vintage British-built B Class steam locomotives.­ Operations between Siliguri and Kurseong have been temporarily suspended since 2010 following a Landslide at Tindharia (view photos of the landslide).­
