Toy train service between NJP and Darjeeling has been suspended for last few years. Now the toy trains are being operated between Karseong and Darjeeling. Most convenient way to enjoy the toy train is Joy Ride between Darjeeling-Ghum-Darjeeling @ Rs.360. There are two trips in a day. Which can be booked through IRCTC site. The process of booking as follows : Log on www.irctc.co.in then click on 'Tourist Train' go to 'Hill Charter' > Darjeeling Himalayan Railway > Click on 'Retail Booking' proceed for booking.

There are only two Joy rides in a day. The third one is DHR. Heritage Toy Train Safari. The journey takes a full day.
