A memorable journey

Mar 16, 2016
Mode of Transport: Train

After 20 years again I have started my journey to Shimla from Howrah station by boarding the Howrah-Kalka mail on 05.02.2016. I travelled in the 1st AC and it was an old pattern coach. I reached Kalka on 07.02.2016 morning, 4.5 hrs late. Though the SHIVALIK Deluxe express was waiting for us patiently and blew her horn on 8.00 am and left Kalka. I had booked my tickets in advance and took the right side seat in the coach. It was a memorable journey in toy train. I was remembering my 20 years old memories and taking snaps. It was a 3.5 hrs journey and I reached Shimla around 12 PM. Breakfast served at Barog Station. It was the only stop in our journey. Almost half an hour before reaching Shimla snowfall started and when we reached Shimla amidst heavy snowfall. OHHHHH IT WAS HEAVEN.

Awesome experience by Shatabdi Express

Mode of Transport: Train

Travelling in a speeding train above 120 kmph was a thrilling experience. Food provided in train was good. Train seat space also is spacious. Arrived at Kalka on time. Toilets were clean and green toilet. New coaches are too good having no vibrations and noise.

The train journey was cool but it took so much time. But it was fun to have with family and nice views also and also good punctuality of the train because of that we reached there at the very morning at 5 am and the toy train ride from Kalka to Shimla, gave me the very awesome experience and very cool view and stations at the height and the small towns at the top view was awesome.
