The regular toy train services of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR) between New Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling railway stations will resume from August 25, senior officials of the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) said on Saturday.

“Every day, one such train will run from Darjeeling and NJP. There will be 17 seats in the first class and 29 seats in the general class,” said Guneet Kaur, the chief PRO of the NFR.

Regular service of DHR was halted with the onset of the pandemic last year. Recently, joy rides between Darjeeling and Ghoom stations were resumed. “We believe resumption of the service will benefit the tourism and hospitality sectors,” Kaur said.

Passengers have to observe all preventive measures and guidelines related to Covid-19, added Kaur.
