Mumbaikars! Good news coming your way. The Central Railway (CR) announced that the iconic toy train, which is one of the major tourist attraction of Matheran, will be back on the tracks and ready to welcome passengers. The services of the toy train had been suspended owing to the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak.
So, hop on and choo choo on your way! The decades-old toy train is a heritage train and has known to ply almost 1,500 commuters on a daily basis from the city. We had been waiting for the train service to restart again so we can truly make the most of this quintessential weekend getaway.
As per the release issued by the CR, four shuttle services will be operated on a daily basis connecting Aman Lodge and Matheran. The first shuttle departs from Matheran at 9:30 AM and the last shuttle departs from Aman Lodge at 4:25 PM. The shuttle will have 3 second class, 1 first class and 2 luggage vans.
