Deccan is the fastest train to reach neral junction from dadar central. It's always on time. Halt is of hardly few minutes, so be prepared. Also, its always crowded, so better to book your tickets in prior. AC chair car is comfortable. From neral to matheran you have two options, either take the toy train, which takes two hours (recommended), offers splendid view. And the second one, taxis.

The Journey via car is awesome. Nice view of the nature. Smell of the sand during rainy season. It was an amazing experience. My tyre got burst in between and hence also there was a tyre mechanic whose shop was beside where the tyre got punctured. Also he was good at heart.

Nice drive to Neral, nice view when we crossed Karjat, weather was awesome and we were comfortable with our car. We stopped over for snacks and also stopped at various places for a view. There are few nice dhabas. Must carry a good camera as the whole journey and trip will make you long for more.

It is good experience to travel by car, because it will take only 30 minutes around to reach there. Good sightseeing spot on the way. It drops us at Aman Lodge and from their we took Toy Train to reach at Matheran. It is attractive for kids.

Really nice experience for this travel.

If travellers are travelling from Mumbai, should catch the Kurla-Karjat train and should get down at Neral and from there they should catch a taxi to reach the Matheran Station. It is a journey of 3-4 hours and I had enjoyed with my family. The toilets are clean and as I was travelling by a local train there was no such food items seller. There was no option of local train so above I choose Karjat-Pune train.
