This train journey between ooty and conoor is very nice. It takes an hour between the stations. Kindly do not sit in the general seats because its crowded. buy better tickets.

Make sure that you book your tickets in the Xerox shop in the basement adjacent to Hotel Shanthi Inn which is opposite to the station. Reservation counters only start issuing tickets 45 minutes before the actual time of journey which is bad. First class tickets cost Rs.160 and can be booked in advance.

very small train but supposed to be the oldest steam engine. we enjoyed travelling through the thick forest, valleys, streams, towns etc.But the train was stopped for some time because of the rain. Additional coaches to be added because this train becomes full so easily.

After being in a hectic lifestyle and polluted environment, it was a nice experience to go in the nilgiri mountain railway. However, dont over expect, since the only things which we can see are some trees, tea gardens and houses. It'll probably get boring while coming back.
