The Kalka Shimla Heritage Toy Train is a prime attraction for tourists going to Shimla. The train runs on a narrow gauge rail track and connects many small towns dotted on the Himalayan slopes between Kalka and Shimla.

The heritage train, 112 years old, was inaugurated way back in 1903 by Lord Curzon, the Viceroy of India.

It indeed is a great example of British Engineering. Even to this day, the controls of the heritage train remain the same as during the British regime right from the signals to the narrow gauge track though the steam engine has been replaced by a modern diesel engine. 

In the year 2008, the toy train was granted the status of a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It indeed is wonderful to experience this rich heritage.
