I clicked this picture outside the Kalka Railway station , which by the way is the starting point of the meandorous Toy Train journey leading to Shimla .
The journey between Kalka and Shimla is said to be a fairytale coming alive. Whole journey looks like a well versed poem.
The train starts at Kalka, 2100 Ft above sea level and ends at Shimla, 5100 Ft above sea level. The uphill journey continues through the mesmerising valleys, small towns and villages, all on hilly terrains. The train moves at a speed of 20 to 25 Kmph, thus leaving all scope for sight seeing and a fair chance for the daring and willing to pull off their own Chaiyan Chaiyan act .( Those who donot know what that is a quick youtube lookup will reveal more)

I don't know what it is but I somehow end up liking this shot- May be because of these indian colors. Technically there may be improvements but I like the feel- seems you've put up a street on TE. Well done.
