    Kalka to Shimla toy train

    Hi

    I just got to know that we have a toy train from Kalka to Shimla too, can somebody tell me is it in service these days or not and is it a good time to visit Shimla. I checked with people around and they said view of Himalayas from Shimla is different from the one which we get from Darjeeling, is it true..
    Till now I have not fixed any date for Shimla trip but I am planning to make it real soon. Any information will be appreciated

    -Irene

    Hi again Voilet,

    Yes, there is a similar or say exactly same narrow gauge train from Kalka to Shimla too (started in 1903 and coal locos are still running on the same track). Just to make sure that I am not confusing you m trying to put it in main points

    Total distance between Kalka to Shimla is 95kms
    Kalka to Shimla toy train takes around 6 hours to travel this distance, its worth going in this train.
    Ticket will cost you Rs. 260 in First Class, Rs. 167 in Chair car and Rs 58 in Second Class (putting a train time table too)
    I have traveled in this train and the experience was totally wonderful and I really enjoyed the trip.

    Shimla is really a best place for travel in any vacation. Darjeeling is also a best place for your travel. That is very cool and different place and you get enjoy there.
