I have heard of special Kalka Shimla Toy Train service for the tourists. Darjeeling is also another place where a joy ride in toy train is offered. I want to know more about these toy trains in India.

Shimla: Covering the route from Kalka to Shimla, this toy train passes through nearly one hundred and seven tunnels and lofty arched bridges. The captivating view and stop over at the spectacular hill stations add thrill to the entire journey. From Kalka, the toy train encompasses a total distance of approximately ninety-six km in 6 hours. dhagamandalam Ooty : Joy rides in toy trains enhance the excitement of travelling to a great extent. Travelling at a speed of nearly thirty-three km per hour this toy train runs through beautiful plains, green plantations and forested hillocks. Ooty is well linked by a narrow gauge line from Matthupalayam, which serves as the railhead for the main line trains. Cranking up almost sixteen tunnels the train crosses tall girder bridges on the way. The captivating scenery that it offers to the passengers is even more splendid. Darjeeling: This has gained all the hype and attention amongst the toy trains of India. It links the town of New Jalpaiguri with the spectacular hill resort of Darjeeling in West Bengal. The toy train line stretches up to approximately eighty-six km. People can get the scope of beholding the breathtaking view of the Himalayas.
