The Kalka–Shimla railway was built to connect Shimla (2205 m), the British Raj summer capital, to Kalka in Haryana (658 m) and to the rest of the rail system. The route is famous for its mesmerizing beauty, breathtaking scenery and improbable construction. It is listed in the guinness book of records for the steepest rise in altitude in a distance of 96 km. In 2008, it became part of the Unesco world heritage site. The Kalka–Shimla toy train was the subject of a Bbc series about Indian hill railway. It's a slow train (avg.21 km/h), 762 mm narrow gauge railway. Source : wiki. Critiques are welcome
