Kurseong --- The station was opened in August 1880. The name Kurseong signifies 'The place of the white Orchids' because lots of small white orchids blossom in this area during the spring time. It's now become a popular hill town. The toy train track runs along the right side of the Hill Cart Road as it goes through the Kurseong area. Although the main market area through which the toy train passes is quite congested, there are lovely scenic areas and tea gardens in Kurseong. The famous 'Makaibari Tea Estate' is only 2kms from the town center. Kurseong is also famous for some well known schools of British colonial period. There is also an interesting DHR museum at Kurseong. Station code - KGN.
