Ooty to Coonoor TOY TRAIN

I will be in Ooty from Aug 31 to Sep 3. I booked two tickets for TOY TRAIN 56139 from UAM to ONR at irctc website. But I am not getting a confirmed return immediately.

Is there any facility at Coonoor to buy tickets on the spot and return back to Ooty ? Problem is my car will be parked at Ooty Station and I need to get back from Coonoor.

What kind of transports are available from Coonoor station to Ooty if train is not an option ? How much is the cost ?

Yup... You may buy a ticket in Coonoor and board the train.. Coonoor is very close to Ooty and commuting between these two places should not be an issue. You may opt for taxis, buses and may be some shared vans. The cost depends on the service you opt. IMO, you will not have an issue in buying a ticket at the station.

I am not sure if the toy train would be operational on those days, as I read in the local dailies that this service would be stopped from the Oct 5 till sometime in November. Request you to read a couple of threads on this topice in this forum, where I remember mentioning the dates or giving a link to the newspaper article. In case, it is there, you may plan a one way trip to Connoor, up or down.

hi everbody,

I watched a local tamil television news analysis program on 25th sep which showed about this Udagamandalam to ooty toy train. There was a rumor among the local people of ooty about stopping this train service in Oct'11.

But in the program they told that due to the Tv channel making effort to continue the services of this toy train and the railway authorities also confirmed the same.

So if the news broadcasted in the channel to be believed this toy train services will NOT be terminated.

with regards,

Alen
