This can waste a lot of your time if you dont plan properly.I mean I would advice to catch the early morning train only to save the time for which you need to get the tickets by 8.30AM sameday(Remember you will have to stand in queue). Anything after that time is not worth.You need to stand in queue anywhere from... More

Crammed in & despite pre-booking seats others were already in our seats & did not move - feigned non-understanding.

One of the good Heritage train which one should never miss if willing to go to Ooty. The only point to be taken care is advance ticket booking.

once in a lifetime experience traveling by this train. Getting the tickets, one has to still stand in a line if not booked in advance using IRCTC. The train treks through some of the good terrains and gives a good view of the hills. One cannot miss this journey and this is a heritage train still operational. If one gets... More

Beautiful experience. But one should reach the station at least half an hour before the scheduled time. Our train for onward journey was very crowded but the train was quite okay during our return journey. Scenic beauty throughout the journey was awesome. We could see wild bison during the course of our return journey. A memorable experience.

Without this Heritage ride your Ooty trip will not be completed. I availed this ride twice, while reaching Ooty I availed the ride from Mettupalayam and while returning I rode again. It was the 1st ever joyride experience of my life and I was spellbound by the beauty of Nilgiri hills. Don't miss it.

This heritage train running from Metupalayam to Ooty via coonoor is anyone s dream journey. This train runs from the British era runs through the mountains and valleys cutting through the mountains entering caves and tunnels across deep high bridges chugging through the dense forests. There is a rack and teeth arrangements on the track to give more safety and... More
