    My estimate would be at least 50 hours by train. Better way would be to fly from Delhi to Bagdogra, then Taxi/Jeep to Darjeeling (about 6 hours)

    Flight is better and faster. But if you are interested by train. This is the best combination
    1. Rajdhani Express from Delhi-Howrah (17-18 hours) and then
    2.Express train from Howrah-Siliguri(New Jalpaiguri)-8-10 hours, eg Darjeeling mail.
    3. Siliguri to darjeeling-Taxi
