There were no injuries to any passenger and the toy train later resumed its service, he said.
This was the fourth toy train derailment this year.
The first was in October, days after the train resumed services post-monsoon break when a luggage-cum-brake van coach derailed near Aman Lodge station.
The other two derailments took place on December 9 and December 20. However, no passenger was injured in any of these derailments.
In 2016 and 2017, for almost two years, the services of the 110-year-old toy train were suspended following back-to -back derailments.
