The Kalka Shimla Railway  is a UNESCO heritage site, and the first Diesel locomotive to ply on this 2' 6" gauge Himalayan NG line was an Arnold Jung Locomotive, that was classified by the Indian Railways as ZDM1. Some were even re-gauged to 2' for the Matheran Hill Railway and re-classified as NDM1.
