The one and a half hour journey from Coonor to Ooty was the best 1 and a half hours of my life. The weather was supportive. It was cloudy but was not raining. The weather was pleasant. The tunnels along the route was just awesome. The view is breathtaking and enjoyable. The first class compartment is comfortable and has tourists. The second class compartments are crowded and have wooden seats. We loved the journey and took it several time in our one year tenure in the hills. There is no food, tea or water available along the route. The train stops only for a few minutes at the few stations along the way. Reach the station a little before time as the trains are generally on time and stop for only a few minutes. And also the wait at the station is very nice and is a photograph able experience and there are no toilets on board the train. So empty your bladders well in advance.
