"The romance of Toy Train "

3.9/5

Posted 29 June, 2016

It is possible to reach Shimla from Chandigarh by car in about three and half hours but journey by train is an altogether different experience. Trains are available from Kalka not Chandigarh and five trains with different timings ply between Kalka and Shimla everyday. The first train 52457 leaves Kalka at 4.00 am but reaching there so early from Chandigarh is difficult. This train is having first class coaches with comfortable seats and enough leg room. Advance booking for this train and train no 52451 (Shivalik Dlx exp) open 90 days before the journey date. Shivalik express leaves at 5.30 am and I rate this as the best train because the deluxe chair car seats are comfortable and lunch is served midway at Barog station. Advance booking for the remaining three trains 72451 (rail motor), 52453 and 52455 opens only 30 days before the journey date. We could get confirmed tickets only for the Himalayan Queen so there was no other option. The chair car seats in this train are small and congested, there is not enough leg room and space for luggage is limited. However, as the train moves you may get mesmerized by the scenic beauty of the hills and forget all discomfort. This train leaves Kalka at 12.00 noon.Kalka is a small place you don't find much at the railway station. The lunch packets available there are not good quality so better carry something with you from Chandigarh. Another option is buy biscuits, chips and fruit juices at Kalka and try spicy cutlets at Barog railway station.All up and down trains stop at Barog for 10 minutes to allow passengers buy eatables.

"Heritage train in India"

5.0/5

Posted 1 December, 2014

I went to Shimla from Baroda where we travelled from Baroda to Kalka via different trains. On reaching Kalka on 18th May 2014 we boarded Himalayan Queen NG Toy train which departed from Kalka for Shimla at 12:10 pm. This train was of 7 coaches and there were no fans in the train. The train left Kalka on its time and we can see very clearly that as soon as it started from Kalka it stated moving up on the hills. The view from the train was excellent and it was too good. On the way its first non-official stop was at Koti Station which was due to the crossing of train from opposite direction. There was a station named Barog which came immediately after crossing a tunnel which took about 3 mins to pass over. Food at Barog Station was excellent where my recommendation would be Kulcha and Pineapple Juice which were so cheap (20 INR per Piece/Bottle) that we had 6 bottles of Pineapple juice during that stay of say 20 mins. Its said that the total journey will be of 5 hours but it was actually of 6:30 hours due to crossing of trains at 2-3 spots.

Actually we planned this trip for my kids. They like to travel by train. We really feel proud to travel on heritage train track covering natural beauty and best construction. Cleanliness is ok in toilets but our focus is on nature and track. Yes it passes through each corner of Shivalik.
