Starting off at 4 Am, in the amid-st of the darkness, we left along with three friends without a premeditated plan about the destination. After reaching at Chandigarh Station, we took a decision to move to Shimla and boarded a train for Kalka in general. In a bitter cold at Kalka. We saw narrow tracks getting lost in the darkness. Those tracks were of the most famous TOY-TRAIN.

We went to the ticket counter, got the tickets and started off with this adventure. Life's best trip indeed, with more than 500 tunnels and bridges, with snow all around, with the God loving scenario and with the narrow streets of small towns of Himachal, running along the train. A 5-hrs journey worth living and experiencing. Kulhad waali chai, Pakode and Himachal ki vaadiyan.

Ended up in Shimla a place of heaven and thus underwent the best journey ever.

When I reached Kalka Railway station I was very excited about the journey. When train started running my heart beat went faster. The view after crossing Dharampur was just amazing and the food that I ate during the travel was awesome. Tea and pakoda was just wow moment in chilled weather.

I visited Shimla in the month of March on my birthday. It was an awesome place and travelling was costly but by bus, but the toy train was cheap. It had a very good scenic beauty specially the Kufri.

This is a heritage train, Kalka to Shimla. When you are thinking about a tour to Shimla you should go via this train. One of this travels are also a part of your memorable journey of your tour.

The train runs between Kalka to Shimla at different timings from Kalka Station. There are express and local train facilities. The main part of this travelling is when train is running between rocks, ups and down itís a moment to cherish and enjoy.

This is really a naturally scene which is very heart touching.

It was an amazing trip by the toy train. After watching the Indian Railway series several times the Shimla-Kalka toy train held no surprises. It is like travelling back in time and the 60 mile journey includes 20 railway stations, 102 tunnels and 900 curves as it winds its way down the mountain side. Beautiful scenery and well worth the trip.
