Indian Hill Railways is multilayered and rich in human interest - quietly spellbinding, beautifully made and lovingly told, the lives of its cast of characters chugging along like the train. This three-part series explores the changing relationship between the little trains that, for a century, have trundled from the Himalayas in the north, to the Nilgiri s in the south and the people whose lives they have shaped over the decades THE DARJEELING HIMALAYAN RAILWAY The story of a railway so close to the people that it flows like a river through their lives. It was the very first hill railway in India which for 125 years has ferried passengers on a narrow two foot track. The Nilgiri Mountain Railway Popular with honeymooners, this train is driven by love and devotion - as well as steam. Celebrating its centenary, the train snakes through the South Indian jungle but rains and landslides threaten the proceedings and the tourist business but the devotion of those who work tirelessly to maintain the tracks win out in the end. THE KALKA SHIMLA RAILWAY Shimla was once the summer capital of the Raj. They built churches, schools, a town hall and the railway. They left behind their symbols of empire and an ethos of duty, loyalty and ambition. But they also left a divided India.
