IANS  |  Siliguri 

Toy train services in the Darjeeling hills were suspended due to landslides caused by heavy rainfall, a official said on Friday.

"Toy train jungle safari ride between New Jalpaiguri station and Rangtang near Siliguri was suspended due to major landslides. Due to heavy rainfall for last three days, landslides occurred at 4-5 places of toy train's railway track from Dukna to Kurseong," said Darjeeling Himalayan Railways' Traffic Inspector Sanjay Ghosh.

Boulders crashed on the railway tracks at Zero near Kurseong twon, he added.

Incessant rainfall in the hills caused landslides at several places and had damaged a stretch of the National Highway-10 connecting West Bengal with Sikkim on Thursday.

Traffic movement, however, on the National Highway 10 and other places of the hilly region, was normal on Friday.
