UNESCO - Mountain Railways of India

Originally it was only  the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway that was inscribed as an Unesco site (1999), but in 2005  the Nilgiri Mountain Railway was added as an extension. The 'Nilagiri Passenger' train (photo) covers a distance of 41.8 km and travels through 208 curves, 16 tunnels and 250 bridges from Mettupalayam to Ooty station.

Thank you Nagi for offering this card in the Unesco tag, and using a variety of stamps -  I esp like the one with Devika Rani, the star of the early Indian movies :))
