Toy train to the hills

A trip to the hills is always special but when it happens on the famous toy train that runs from Chandigarh to the Summer Capital of the erstwhile British Empire in India, Shimla, it’s even more so.
Though I have not recently visited Shimla, these pictures from 2008 show the beauty along the journey and the thrill of being in the tiny train, now a Unesco World Heritage Site.
The breathtaking valleys, the 100 tunnels, heritage train stations and the light rain along the way makes it one of the most memorable trips ever.

  1. Oh how fun! Thanks for sharing! I’m an old train buff, and love finding trains like this to ride. Last one I was on was in the mountains of Colorado.
