A steam locomotive pulling a passenger train from the Darjeeling train station (India)

The locomotive is configured backward on this train (it is going towards the left on the photo).­ Not that it makes a big difference, since those locomotives can be used equally in either direction.­

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).­
