Mathura to Simla would be a staggered journey, of course if you do not cover the entore distance by car.
Convenient would be to take a train from Mathura to Kalka, the nearest major rail station to Simla. The only train from Mathura 12925 Paschim Express departs at 0750 hours from Mathura and arrives Kalka at 1640 hours. You can take a car from there and head towards Simla (96 km). The jouney time would be around 2.5/3 hours.
Alternatively, come to Delhi. The best train from Delhi to Kalka is the 12311 Howrah Kalka Mail (Dep. 2140 hours, Arr. 0440 hours, next day). From Kalka itself, you can avail the 'narrow gauge' train for the 5 hour journey to Simla.
# 52453 Kalka Simla Express (Dep. 0600 hours, Arr. 1105 hours)
# 52455 Himalayan Queen (Dep.1210 hours, Arr. 1720 hour).
By road, Simla is about 550 kms from Mathura with a journey time of about 9 hours.
