An epitome of world-class engineering, the mountain railways were built during British India between the 19th and 20th centuries. Mountain railways run on a historic path carved through the mountains passing through scenic valleys exposing views of ethereal beauty. Small-sized engines running on slim tracks, India’s first mountain railway was playfully referred to as a ‘toy train’ by Darjeeling residents. The name stuck, and India’s network of narrow-gauge trains are all now affectionately known by the moniker. Three of the present mountain railways in India are given the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site - Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, Kalka–Shimla Railway and Nilgiri Mountain Railway. The other famous Toy trains are Neral-Matheran Railway and Pathankot-Joginder Nagar Railway.
