All aboard India's joyful 'toy train'

In a world of where everyone is rushing to get to their destination on flights, bullet trains and highways, these remnants of the past give you time to sit back and enjoy traveling at a contemplative pace, without the rush.
India's Kalka-Shimla toy train is among the most impressive representatives of this type of rail travel, regularly topping global "most scenic" trip lists.
UNESCO added it to its World Heritage list in 1999, calling it an "exceptional technical achievement in the development of the Himalayan mountains." The listing includes two other remarkable Indian mountain railways: the iconic Darjeeling Himalayan Railway and Nilgiri Mountain Railway.
