According to news agency ANI, no casualties have been reported.

The historic toy train is a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow-gauge railway that runs between New Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling. The DHR, a prime attraction for tourists visiting Darjeeling, is a world heritage for its marvellous engineering of the erstwhile British era.

On 2 December 1999, UNESCO declared the DHR a World Heritage Site. Two more railway lines were later added, and the site became known as the mountain railways of India.
