Toy Train from Mettupalayam to Ooty

I have booked for Toy train (First Class) from Mettupalayam to Ooty for 30th September 2012 but it was in Waiting List 1 , 2 ,3 for past two months . When I have booked it was WL 3,4,5 . It became WL 1,2,3 by August 21st. Since there are only 20 days left , I would like to know whether some chances are there for the tickets to get confirmed ?

Thanks .

Remote or may be one or two would get confirmed. Suggest you also book in the Second Class to ensure travel as these tickets are very low cost. For further predictions, you way check at PNR Predictions part of indiarailinfo.com, which I am satisfied using.

Hi Prasanna,

I haven't booked in Second class since the waiting list is already around 45 . I have posted the same waiting list status for my booked tickets in indianrailinfo.com and I have received all the 35 responses as the ticket will get confirmed. Is there any General Quota tickets which will be available for Toy train ? Is there Tadkal bookings ? Please suggest.

Thanks

Hi Ramesh...

If the response is 100% positive in indiarailinfo, then I personally think you need not have to worry. You can always find a place in that train, if there is an issue, by paying a few hundreds. This is my personal opinion.

Hi Prasanna ,

Thanks for the reply . I hope that it will get confirmed . Else I will miss the toy train :( I have also checked for travel between Conoor and Ooty . Two trains were available but the timings of the train are not convenient . Hoping for the best !

FWIW, I booked first class tickets for travel in mid-August around 10 days before travel and it was WL 5/6, and it got confirmed the previous day before travel. So, I don't think you need to worry about it.

Hi Ramesh J,

I don't think there would be an issue. If not confirmed, which is very very remote, read the second line of my reply.
