The Tung railway station between Darjeeling and Kurseong. It is at a height of about 3500 feet. The railway station is just a small office on the roadside beside the residences of ordinary people.

A view of the toy train.

One of the many charming life-like stuffed creatures in the Natural History Museum in Darjeeling.
