The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway narrow gauge tracks are sharing the road with car traffic on the entire length of the tracks, along the narrow mountain road (National Highway 55) between Siliguri and Darjeeling (78 kilometres /­ 48 mi).­

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).­
