Hello All, there seems to be either a lack of any, or too much contradictory information on the status of the train from NJP to DJ. As I am trying to arrange travel to Darjeeling, preferably by said train, I wonder could anyone please give me a definitive and conclusive answer as to whether the train is currently operational for the full length of the journey? The planned travel date is on the weekend of 27/28th July 2013.. Thank you in advance for any info, tips and words of advice offered.

Bruce.
Move on. It's just a chapter in the past. No need to close the book. Just turn the page. Better still, take that pen up out your pocket and get started on your own story.

On the last weak of May I decided to visit Darjeeling one more time for a few hours, while I was driving to Siliguri from Gangtok. Although I initially decided that I shall spend at least three or four hours there, I had to unfortunately waste over two good hours at a traffic snarl just before entering Darjeeling town. And tjat is when standing at the Hill Cart road just below Batasia loop, I could clearly listen to the huff and puff of a steam locomotive, certainly coming out from the engine of a toy train.
