Bartasia Loop

On our train ride we also had a short stop at Bartasia Loop, one of a number of loops on the line to help the train deal with the gradient in a gradual way.  This loop also has a War Memorial, to Gurkha Soldiers, surrounded by a garden.  During our stop there, a remembrance service was taking place.
