From Delhi, take the Shatabadi or the Himalayan Queen express to Kalka... both leave New Delhi station in the morning. The Shatabadi gets you there a little faster though, and includes meals etc in its fare. Though for non a/c accomoation, the Himalayan queen will have options.

At Kalka station, take the toy train to Kandaghat. First class fare to Kandaghat is about rs 150 (if i remember right?) and general (unreserved) fare is rs 28. The general fare however, does not guarantee you a seat, as we discovered on our way back. To get a first class ticket, its best to have one from one of the two terminals (Kalka or Shimla).

The journey to Kandaghat lasts about four hours...
