MOUNTAIN TRAINS: If you have some time to spare, take a slow toy train up to the hill resort of Shimla, Ooty (Udhagamandalam), Darjeeling or Matheran. There is nothing to match the experience of chugging up the hills, past little hamlets and terraced fields, making your way through tunnels and over breathtaking bridges. Its leisurely pace offers you a panoramic view of changing vistas. The invigorating air and the delights of scenic hill resort provide a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

山地火车:如果你的时间充足,可搭乘玩具火车前往高山避暑胜地西姆拉、乌堤(乌塔卡蒙德)、大吉岭或马泰兰,有什么比哐当哐当爬上山冈,驶过小村庄和梯田,穿过隧道,跨越桥梁的火车之旅更值得体验呢?火车从容不迫地行驶着,风景变幻尽收眼底。在这里,空气令人神清气爽;高山度假胜地让人欣喜不已,使人们暂时远离了城市的忙碌喧嚣。

 

Shimla: The toy train journey from Kalka to Shimla is entertaining with 107 tunnels and lofty arched bridges. The dazzling view and the stops at the picturesque stations along the way Dharmpore, Taksal, Gamma and Solan all add up to an exhilarating experience.

西姆拉:从卡尔卡到西姆拉的玩具火车之旅穿过107个隧道和拱桥,沿途美景眼花缭乱,在DharmporeTaksalGammaSolan沿线均设有站点,风景如画,让你不虚此行。

How to reach ShimlaA broad gauge line up to Kalka connects Shimla. 'The Toy Train' covers the distance of 96 km between the two stations within six hours. 

西姆拉交通指南:一段到达卡尔卡的宽轨经过西姆拉。两个火车站相距96公里,搭乘玩具火车能在6小时内到达。


Ooty (Udhagamandalam): 
The Nilgiri Mountain Railway starts from the town of Mettupalayam and thus begins a journey full of twists and turns as this narrow gauge train ascends 46 km, on its way to the hill resort at Ooty. At a maximum speed of 33 km per hour this 'toy train' treks across plains, plantations and forest clad hills. The 16 tunnels and tall bridges on the way along with the breathtaking view make this toy train journey to Ooty an extraordinary experience!

乌堤(乌塔卡蒙德):尼尔吉里山区铁路以美图帕拉亚镇为起点,开启了迂回曲折之旅,其窄轨列车上升46公里,通向乌堤的高山度假胜地。玩具火车最大时速达到每小时33公里,穿过平原、种植园和森林覆盖的山丘。沿途穿越16座隧道和桥梁,风景摄人心魄,带给旅客无与伦比的体验。


How to reach Ooty
Ooty is connected by a narrow gauge line from Mettupalayam, which serves as the railhead for mainline trains. The Nilgiri Express connects Mettupalayam with Chennai daily. Coimbatore, the nearest city is 90 km away and linked to all the major cities by rail. Mettupalayam is easily accessible from Coimbatore by frequent bus or train services.

乌堤交通指南:窄轨铁路以美图帕拉亚为起点通往乌堤,美图帕拉亚是干线列车的起点。尼尔吉里快车将美图帕拉亚与钦奈连通。最近的城市是哥印拜陀市位于90公里外,并且有铁路与所有主要城市连通。从哥印拜陀市搭乘巴士或火车前往美图帕拉亚车次较多,十分便捷。

Matheran: The 77 year old line, connecting Neral (on main line of Central Railway) to Matheran , is the main way to reach the tiny hill resort, close to Mumbai. As the little train wheezes up into the clear mountain air one can view the scenic vista of hills and plains below. The lack of vehicular traffic at Matheran makes it an unusual and peaceful retreat.

马泰兰:拥有77年历史的老铁路连接内拉尔(位于中央铁路主线)和马泰兰,这是前往高山度假胜地的主要方式,毗邻孟买。随着小火车慢慢驶上山冈,空气洁净,山丘和平原的优美景色尽收眼底。马泰兰的来往车辆较少,是难得的静养之地。


How to reach Matheran
The toy train to Matheran commences from Neral (Mumbai Pune line), which is connected from Mumbai by local train. The journey up to Matheran from Neral takes about 1 1/2 hours. The toy train runs between sunrise and sunset.

马泰兰交通指南:前往马泰兰的玩具火车从内拉尔(孟买普纳线)发车,由当地火车与孟买连接。从内拉尔到马泰兰的行程需要花费1.5小时。玩具火车从日出到日落间运行。

Darjeeling: The most famous of the little trains, is the one linking the town of New Jalpaiguri the plains to the lovely hill station of Darjeeling. With a 2 ft gauge, the Darjeeling Hill Railway is indeed a 'toy train' being the narrowest of the regular narrow gauges. The tiny centuryold engine is connoisseur's delight. The 86 km Darjeeling line has no tunnels, thus allowing the traveller an uninterrupted view of the breathtaking scenery of the Himalaya. The 7 1/2 hour ride is a journey especially for rail buffs.

大吉岭:新杰尔拜古里镇平原到大吉岭车站段运行着最闻名遐迩的小火车。大吉岭铁路宽仅2英尺(约0.6米),属于普通窄轨铁路中最窄的,是名副其实的玩具火车。其小型引擎已有上百年历史,最为行家津津乐道。长达86千米的大吉岭铁路全程没有隧道,喜马拉雅山摄人心魄的风景一览无余。7.5小时的玩具火车之旅是火车爱好者们不容错过的体验。

Access to DarjeelingNew Jalpaiguri , the starting point of the hill train to Darjeeling, has direct connections to Calcutta, Delhi, Guwahati and other places in India. 

大吉岭交通指南:新杰尔拜古里镇是通往大吉岭的铁道起点,并可直达加尔各答、德里和古瓦哈提等地。
