Toy train as the name say when you get in, it really looks like a toy. Seatings are quite limited and compact in coach. Do not carry much luggage with you when travelling by toy train. As TT told me that they don't allow big trunks inside.
Don't confuse with the name when you book tickets. Every train which go to shimla from kalka is a toy train.It takes around 5 hours to reach shimla.
We took himalayan queen at 12 o'clock. When it started from kalka, for the first hour we were sweating like a hell and though we did a terrible mistake to choose it but as time passed and it started turning arround hills. It turned into pleasant view and weather. It pass through many tunnels and sudden turns to dark.The view of nature from train was amazing which you miss when go by road.
There is station call "badog" which is so classy and looks like a resort. I recommend to get down by train and visit the whole place.
