Shivalik Deluxe Train Tours Information


Shivalik Deluxe Toy Train
The lush valleys of Himachal Pradesh are unparalleled in offering a panoramic vista to tourists who flock to the state through out the year. Easily approachable from the plains of northern India, the picturesque Shivalik valley in the Kalka-Shimla region affords a breathtaking experience.

To promote the concept of integrated tourism development, the Indian Railways after collaborating with the Himachal Tourism have added a touch of class to the Shivalik Deluxe Toy Train on the Kalka-Shimla route. The train runs between the Kalka and Shimla , Shimla is the capital of Himachal Pradesh and Kalka is situated on the foot hills of Shivalik Mountain Range.The whole journey is like paradise , with beautiful seneries all over the journey.

The Destinations Covered in the Kalka Shimla Rail Route
The 96-km long Kalka-Shimla narrow gauge railway track combines antiqueness and modernity with a gift of pilgrimage and natural charm. The rail motor car of 1927 vintage which had the distinction of bringing Mahatma Gandhi in 1945 to Shimla for talks with Viceroy Wavell about British plans to leave India, is still rail worthy and remains a tourist's attraction. The Gothic-style Barog railway station has become a favourite jaunt of Bollywood stars.

Going back to 1903, the Kalka-Shimla rail track is an engineering marvel, with 103 tunnels and over 700 non-girder bridges in a distance of only 96-km. The route's longest tunnel, midway at Barog, is 3,760 feet long. More than two- thirds of the entire track is on curves, some as sharp as 48 degrees.

The train stops at or run past Jabli, Dharampur, Barog, Solan, Salogra, Kandaghat and Taradevi, to name a few of the well maintained railway stations on the way. The Shivalik Deluxe Express, popularly known as the narrow-gauge Shatabdi, caters to top-of-the-line clientele. Introduced in June 1996, the Shivalik Deluxe Express runs packed to nine months capacity during the year.
