... needed to say we had tried. The fog was persistent and became a lot denser as we climbed higher but we continued on and purchased tickets for a room with a seat as it was freezing. My chair decided to floor dive as I sat on it as I was just too 'giant' and snapped the leg. Huddled in, we shared warmth and waited about 45 minutes before daylight started to emerge. Every now and then a cackle of voices erupted and people sprang from their seats, cameras above their ...

... fun, reminded us of our holidays in Devon. The train trundled along the track, twisting and turning along the roadside. Peter kept getting "coaled", showered with small bits of coal as he leaned out the window taking pictures!

First 45 minutes was on flat rough road under repair then the steep ascent on an extremely windy narrow road. Corners were very sharp and our vehicle used his horn at ...

    ... the big old giant to the North Kanchenjunga, but hopefully we will have better luck in Gangtok(our next stop). Crucially the people here as I've mentioned before are friendly and welcoming. We both feel so safe, and get the impression no one has a single bad bone in their body.
