I was lucky to have taken a trip when this train was puled by a steam engine where the engine was so small that the engine driver's head from almost chest above world be seen when he stands up charging the engine with coal. However for the past many years this train is powered by a diesel locomotive which again is a lovely site to watch and be in...the compartments (more like a toy compartment) can only seat people as there may not be adequate head space to stand up and travel..the speed of the train is so slow that you can jump out have a stretch break and get back on the train, especially during the climb from the base station to the top Dargeeling main station which takes a couple of hours. Adults will be as thrilled as children on this trip!
