Delhi-Shimla-Delhi with toy train ride: A Photologue

I was quite fascinated by toy train since childhood, like to travel in it for quite some time got chance in this summer.

Mode: Kalka Shatabdi for Delhi-Kalka-Delhi and toy train Himalayan Queen for Kalka-Shimla-Kalka all booking made online through IRCTC

Accommodation: Honeymoon Inn Shimla booked through Make my trip

Completed this Shimla trip in second week of May’2011, visited Shimla earlier also and liked the place very much due to its proximity to Delhi, nowadays it becomes quite chaotic place but still manageable, hotel staff arranges our entire local site seeing on day to day basis.

Nothing much to write let pics speak for themselves, starting with Shimla-Kalka toy train pics below:

Good snaps, I have travelled Shimla in this train long ago. It still looks fascinating and nothing much seems to have changed. Thanks for refreshing the memories. :smile:

Thanks, glad to hear this from you freakdude, try to board morning toy train from Kalka to Shimla The Shivalik Deluxe Express which departs at 5:30AM and far comfortable than Himalayan queen as this is 5-6 hrs long journey.

Thanks for your lovely words TSIVipul, try this toy train thing once in a life worth experience try to board Shivalik Deluxe Express which is much comfortable and luxury toy train.

Kids will surely love this whole experience, saw them enjoying it most and remember to carry lots of dry food as stations are ill equipped.

aah never been to the toy train[cry]

Yep it is very slow dead slow, i also saw it from my car lots of time but i just want to experience it once in my life.

You haven't been in toy train...I haven't been in any train till date.and hence i am still like a kid who loves watching train going..:tongue:

About speed of toy train,+1000 to you..
They are too boring for my taste.Afterall nothing can match the joy of doing 60-80 or even 100 kph on the hilly roads which I love doing(there are enough straight stretches to do even upto 120,only your car must be able to pick up speed so rapidly).
