Its a good experience but try and do it during the day. Get to the station early (30 min) to get your tickets.

the trip in the heritage train was worth remembering. Mostly from coonoor to mtp, when the train was pulled by the toy train.

The train route is very scenic. The speed of the train is a bit on the slower side, but that ensures that one enjoys each and every scene. As the train climbs the mountain, one can feel the cool breeze and fresh air.

If one has a few hours to spend, then this is a little train journey one musn't miss out on. This small single gauge train chugs along, huffing and puffing its way up the hill from mettupalayam to coonoor, and onward to ooty. It travels slowly so that you can take in all the beauty of the Niligiris.
