I went to Shimla from Baroda where we travelled from Baroda to Kalka via different trains. On reaching Kalka on 18th May 2014 we boarded Himalayan Queen NG Toy train which departed from Kalka for Shimla at 12:10 pm.

This train was of 7 coaches and there were no fans in the train. The train left Kalka on its time and we can see very clearly that as soon as it started from Kalka it stated moving up on the hills. The view from the train was excellent and it was too good.

On the way its first non-official stop was at Koti Station which was due to the crossing of train from opposite direction. There was a station named Barog which came immediately after crossing a tunnel which took about 3 mins to pass over. Food at Barog Station was excellent where my recommendation would be Kulcha and Pineapple Juice which were so cheap (20 INR per Piece/Bottle) that we had 6 bottles of Pineapple juice during that stay of say 20 mins. Its said that the total journey will be of 5 hours but it was actually of 6:30 hours due to crossing of trains at 2-3 spots.

I had booked the flight well in advance and thus got a good deal. Also Vadodara being a small airport we have limited options. Indigo always maintains its timings and is very convenient. But it would be nice if they provided basic refreshments like atleast fruit juice.

Few people doesn’t like journey by bus but I enjoyed it too much and the services provided within the bus was good. They had separate charging points & it was an AC bus which was cleaned at every stoppage.

Staff was very friendly and the whole journey was long but due to AC bus it was comfortable. The hotel's provided by the tour operator was good as compared to other tour operators.

My advice to the travellers is to travel only by train if you are travelling a long distance journey. Avoid bus journeys on this route. Till Shimla you will get train facility if you book early. There are so many good budget hotels nearby Kalka Railway Station

SpiceJet is a good airline to travel in. It has cooperative crew members, and the airline serves good food. I would recommend to fly with SpiceJet. Moreover it is economical. Amritsar airport is clean and good. I had good experience with the flight; it was on time and we reached the destination on time.
