Photographer's Note

Road to Darjeeling - IV : This shot was taken near Goethals school on way to Darjeeling from Kurseong.In this shot you can see a couple young men sitting outside a building beside the toytrain track.A toy train in colors is approaching from behind the curve and moving down the hill towards Kurseong station.This is the latest and the last edition from the mini-series Road to Darjeeling and I have tried to keep it as a black and white shot as much as possible given the fact that it is my 150th upload on Treakearth.I hope you like this one too as you liked my 100 th upload a few months back.

Some tidbits about Goethals Memorial School :

Goethals Memorial School is a boarding school run by the Congregation of Christian Brothers in India. It is set in a forest 5 km (3 miles) from Kurseong between Siliguri and Darjeeling at an altitude of 1674 meters (5500 feet) above sea level. The school was founded in 1907, and is named after Jesuit Archbishop of Calcutta (now Kolkata), Paul Goethals. The land for the school was donated by the Maharaja of Bardhaman.On the death of Paul Goethals, Archbishop of Calcutta, in July 1901 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Calcutta commemorated his memory by the establishment of an educational institution for boys in Kurseong.
