Steam locomotives in the Darjeeling Train Yard (India)

The two locomotives in the back (#788 "Tusker" and ­#782 "Mountaineer") are warm and ready to work. One of them will be used to pull the next train, while a spare one is kept ready in case of last-minute problems with the main one. Because it takes hours to heat-up the steam boiler, the two steam engines must be warm and ready hours before the train is scheduled to leave. A railroad worker is staying up all night and feeding coal in their furnaces to keep both engines warm.

The locomotive in the front (#804 "Queen of the Hills") is undergoing maintenance. It will get new wheels.
