State of Himachal Pradesh Transportation: 6 reviews and 6 photos
With the honour of placing itself in the Guinness Book of Rail facts and Feats, the toy train deserves a bigger name! The toy train to Kalka and Shimla is one out of 20 vintage mountain railways running in the world. Mastermind of Lord Curzon, this narrow gauge train covers the distance of 96 kms in six hours going through 103 tunnels, 969 bridges with 919 curves, 20 railway stations and 5 level crossings on the route. The train started running in 1904 A.D. and is an engineering marvel. Going through the most picturesque mountains and valleys, the traveller seldom remembers the slow pace of the train. The longest tunnel that it passes through is around 6000 feet with the immediate next follows which is a kilometre long.
The other sightseeing places which are abundant in natural beauty are Summer Hill, the Glen Forest, the Prospect Hill and Anand Dale.
