Taking a trip on the historic UNESCO World Heritage Kalka-Shimla toy train is like traveling back in time. The railway, built by the British in 1903 to provide access to the summer capital of Shimla and is one of the most scenic train journeys in India. It enlivens passengers as it gradually winds its way steeply upwards along the narrow track, through the rugged mountain and pine forests.
A toy train ride gives you the most scenic splendor in Kasauli. This toy train Kasauli is one of the three such trains still functioning, the other two in Ooty and Darjeeling. While in Kasauli you can board the train from Dharampur up to Barog station and return. It is a one hour ride through the pine forest and long tunnels. It can be a lifetime experience.
The railway was declared a heritage by the Himachal Pradesh government in 2007, and in 2008 it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the other Mountain Railways of India. When you are in Kasauli you must not miss the toy train ride.

We visited Kasauli in the peak season and were not sure about finding the slots for this toy train experience. Luckily we saw this online booking on Thrillophilia and reserved our booking and got additional discounts too. It’s worth an experience. The views are really amazing during the ride. It was so much fun sitting in that old train.
