TTL: Darjeeling – Loco Special

This is a continuation of my trip to Darjeeling. How I reached here, and what I saw, check them here

Now, I was refreshed, and off I went walking back to the station. Now, there are two types of locos here, the Diesel one, and the heritage steam one.
The diesel trip from Darjeeling to Ghoom and back will cost you Rs 650 while the steam one, for the same distance will cost you Rs 1050. Be advised, there is pretty immense rush there, so book in advance.

Enough talk, now the photos!
