Delhi to Shimla

If we hire a car and driver to take us to Shimla from Delhi, is it possible to break the journey and stay overnight somewhere on route?

Thank you will look into that as I have looked at buses and they all go overnight, we would prefer to see some of the scenery but it is a long trip during the day, best if we break it up.

My preferred route : sleeper train Delhi-Kalka, quick chai before the toy train starts , arrive for lunch. Car from Kalka is faster , and less fun. The scenery before Kalka is easly missable , to be diplomatic.

So we could catch the 17.15 train from Delhi arrive in Kalka around 22hrs overnight stay and then catch the toy train to Shimla, how far in advance can we book the Shivalik Deluxe Express?

# 6 : Not my way. The sleeper train from Delhi ( tenish ) arrives in time for morning chai & switching to the toy train in Kalka.
