What to expect

Riding the Toy Train of Nilgiris Mountain Railways (NMR) has always remained a coveted experience to the tourists. Only few would let go such an opportunity. And there is a clear reason why so. After all this Toy Train has been accorded the UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Operating on narrow gauges and providing an important transport from Mettupalayam to Ooty, the toy train is an icon of our heritage since the colonial days and an engineering marvel that was achieved during that period. It also offers a wonderful way of absorbing the picturesque Nilgiris scenes as you traverse along the slopes of the hills.

Where else can you find a small steam engine pulling mini coaches up the steep mountains through breathtaking landscapes and overcoming almost impossible curves and caves using sheer engineering? The snail pace at which the train moves through the hilly terrain is at times so slow that you can often see the local children hopping on and off the train on the move.

Although the diesel engines used these days are faster and more powerful, the original steam engines still operate in some sections and also for joyrides. The steam loco-drawn trains sometimes tend to skid in steep gradients. You can often see an attendant standing in front of the engine and sprinkling sand on the track to overcome such difficulties, particularly in monsoon time.

Won’t you like to experience a ride on such heritage transport that once provided the first and the most important mountain transportation link in the country? And the one that offers a unique ride with picturesque mountain views. You will pass by caves and peak mountains on the way with children on the street waving at you as you take this relaxed and charming journey through the hills.
