Though originally the Toy Train runs from Neral to Matheran, recently the railways introduced a shuttle service from near the car parking at Dasturi point to Matheran, to and fro, nearly on hourly basis. The journey is over this distance of about two and a half km on the narrow gauge and is definitely a must to get a old charm heritage train ride. This shuttle has been a boon to people who drive up in their cars or by taxi till Dasturi point. Hereafter either one walks down or take a horse ride. But the horse ride has become very costly as the charge one way is anywhere from Rs 400 up. The one way shuttle costs just Rs 40.
Enjoy the ride with nice views of hills and greenery along the ride.
