We took the train from Ooty to Coonoor and back. The journey on the heritage train was a great experience. The coaches are well maintained and efficiently run. The views are picturesque. The stations too are clean and the staff is courteous.

Great views. Runs through caves and above streams. Mettupalayam to ooty is a 5hrs travel. Must be patient enough to enjoy it. Good and well maintained coaches. Steam engines and its sound taking time to the ages.
