Too many questions . Let me address part by part .

First Mahabaleswar is not in the same belt as Ooty,Kodai and Coorg . So please check whether you intended correct place .

Toy Train - If you want long journey from Mettupalayam to ooty , it is better to book First Classs tickets well in advance (usually goes off first day of opening during peak period) . If it is just between Ooty to Conoor one hour drive you can take local tickets from station itself .

trip details - There are lot of forums and good response by expert Prasanna in other threads . If still need some more help please drop those

Welcome to Trip Advisor....

Firstly, the topographies... Mahabaleshwar is near Pune, Maharasthra, Bangalore, Mysor & Coorg are in Karnataka and Ooty is in Tamil Nadu but close to the Karnataka border. So, you may reach Bangalore from Calcutta and do Coorg - Mysore - Ooty and reach Coimbatore, so as to board a train to Chennai. This is phase one. Then, you may have to have to reach Satara or Pune to reach Mahabaleshwar. If the idea of going to Chennai is only for the connectivity, then, there are direct trains from Coimbatore to Pune, which makes it easy.

Toy Train - This train plies between Mettupalayam to Coimbatore and not inside Ooty. So you may be able to enjoy the natural sceneries enroute and not Ooty.

Feel free to revert for any further clarifications,
