If you are visiting Shimla from New Delhi I think this is the best train the Himalayan Queen. The departure from Sarai Rohilla Station, 5:45 am and arrival was at Kalka, 11:00 (Approx). I was travelling in second seating, AC chair car and we did pre-booking of tickets. The stoppages were Delhi Sarai Rohilla (departs), Sonipat, Panipat (30 min halt), Karnal, Kurukshetra, Ambala, Chandigarh (10 min halt), Chandi Mandir, Kalka (Destination). They provide catering food in this train.

Last month on 28 January 2015, I went to Shimla from New Delhi. Shimla is an awesome place for travelling. It's an awesome experience. My wife and I stayed in this city for 3 days. We went to Mall road and other markets. My wife was so happy and I was also very happy. I recommended everyone who is going for honeymoon to go to Shimla. Next year I am going to Shimla one more time.

It was wonderful. Our journey began from Delhi Hazrat Nizam station, the journey was fine till we reached Kalka in the morning because trains don't go to shimla so the broad gauge ends at Kalka and from there you have to take the narrow gauge trains available on a single track for both going and coming back.

Well we had a first class reservation so we got into the train on time after Kalka mail arrived. We boarded in the morning and the journey was splendid. It was beautiful. Once you are inside the train you will feel the clouds below you, you will feel like floating on the clouds and the tunnels keep coming in between along with the food they serve you from time to time. It's not a long journey though. You will not get bored. I am sure you will take a lot of pics in between. The clouds, the mountains, the greenery, the tunnels and the whistling steam engine. You will not get any plains there, so train will get very slow sometimes due to slopes in the tracks.
