13th July 2015, Himalchal Pradesh. The Himalayan Queen narrow gauge 'Toy Train' running on the Kalka-Shimla Railway stands at Dharampur station, Himalchal Pradesh, India on the 13th July 2015. The Kalka-Shimla Railway is a 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge railway in North-West India travelling along a mostly mountainous route from Kalka to Shimla. It is known for dramatic views of the hills and surrounding villages. Prior to construction of the railway, communication with the outside world was via village cart. The Kalka-Shimla Railway was build on 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge tracks by the Delhi-Ambala-Kalka Railway Company beginning in 1898. The estimated cost was Rs 86,78,500 but the cost doubled during construction. The 96.54 km (59.99 mi) line opened for traffic on November 9, 1903. It was inaugurated by Viceroy of India Lord Curzon. Because of the high capital and maintenance costs and peculiar working conditions, the Kalka-Shimla Railway was allowed to charge higher fares than on other lines. However, the company was still not profitable and was purchased by the government on January 1, 1906 for Rs 1,71,07,748. In 1905 the line was re-gauged to 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) to conform to standards set by the Indian War Department. In 2007, the government of Himachal Pradesh declared the railway a heritage property. On July 8, 2008, the Kalka-Shimla Railway became part of the World Heritage Site Mountain Railways of India alongside Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, Nilgiri Mountain Railway, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. ?

13th July 2015, Himalchal Pradesh. The Himalayan Queen narrow gauge 'Toy Train' running on the Kalka-Shimla Railway passing through a tunnel, Himalchal Pradesh, India on the 13th July 2015. The Kalka-Shimla Railway is a 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge railway in North-West India travelling along a mostly mountainous route from Kalka to Shimla. It is known for dramatic views of the hills and surrounding villages. Prior to construction of the railway, communication with the outside world was via village cart. The Kalka-Shimla Railway was build on 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge tracks by the Delhi-Ambala-Kalka Railway Company beginning in 1898. The estimated cost was Rs 86,78,500 but the cost doubled during construction. The 96.54 km (59.99 mi) line opened for traffic on November 9, 1903. It was inaugurated by Viceroy of India Lord Curzon. Because of the high capital and maintenance costs and peculiar working conditions, the Kalka-Shimla Railway was allowed to charge higher fares than on other lines. However, the company was still not profitable and was purchased by the government on January 1, 1906 for Rs 1,71,07,748. In 1905 the line was re-gauged to 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) to conform to standards set by the Indian War Department. In 2007, the government of Himachal Pradesh declared the railway a heritage property. On July 8, 2008, the Kalka-Shimla Railway became part of the World Heritage Site Mountain Railways of India alongside Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, Nilgiri Mountain Railway, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. ?
