News Release Dated 25 November 2017

The Siliguri Times in its edition of 25th November quotes the DRM as confirming that NJP-DJN services will resume by 30 December 2017.

The general strike in support of ‘Gorkhaland’ that had crippled the Darjeeling region ended on 27 September and normal business and tourist activity is slowly reviving.

A limited service of Joy Trains – two steam and one diesel – on the Darjeeling to Ghum section resumed on 28 October. Further services will be added as demand revives.
Services on the rest of the route will resume only after the clearance of several landslips/extensive vegetation growth and this will take many more weeks. At present there is no indication as to how long that will be.
