Goodby to Matheran's Toy Train

Recent unwanted mishaps, two coach-derailments at Aman Lodge and a nearside disaster by a run-away of coaches on a siding at Jhumpati in April/May 2016 have send Safety related authorities into a tizzy. In the latest development on the Safety Issue the toy train service has been suspended. At moment it is uncertain if track and rolling stocks can be revamped up to modern Safety Standards, and when or if at all the service can be resumed.

Chug Chug Gaadi

This toy train in Neural - Matheran is really very cool joy ride. The stations are small and clean. The train is always full of passengers on weekends. The train is very slow to cover the distance in 2 hours moving across the hill to the top with the beautiful scenic view of the nearby places. The train services is not functional in rainy season to avoid landslide related mishaps. The tracks and train are under maintenance in this season.

One of a kind journey

One of a kind train journey, all the way from Neural to Matheran. The route is very scenic and one way journey takes around 2 + hours and each moment spent is cherished. The plus point is that there is no rush and all tickets have an allotted seat number. One should keep the camera ready to capture the innumerable picturesque shots enroute Matheran.

Very Own Kind of Enjoyful Journey

Toy train runs from Neural station point to Matheran. Can be good to ride, and can give beautiful sceneric views on the way. Tunnel is designed to cross throughout the forest, hills and city. Can be very good to travel with families and kids.Can be cancelled on rainy days and even for a season. So check that before planning a trip.

Awesome view of nature

This is narrow gauge train which covers approx 21 km in 2 hrs time. If you are nature lover then this is the only one option for you. By bus or by car you can reach Matheran within 20 mins. Only train is allowed to enter in the town. If you came by taxi/car, you have to park it 2 km away as it is green zone and vehicles are not allowed. Train carries 45 bogies including 1 for luggage and 1 first class. Fare 65 for ordinary class and 265 for first class.

First time experience was good. Major attractions sightseeing from the window, but risky travelling in night or evening as sometimes the engine gets failure.
