It is a narrow gauge train taking the visitors on a round trip of the beautiful landscaped Matheran. For the view points of the valley one has to walk or go on a pony. The parking space for Cars is abundant & one can spend the whole day walking around, keeping fitness on its very high.

I was unable to travel on this train, though I would love to travel some day. The terminus of this train lies right at the heart of Matheran. You have to book well in advance.

The "toy" train to carry guests to the hotel's is not currently working. It also costs about $10 dollars to get your bags hauled up to the resorts.

Perfect time to visit Matheran is between August to January. Matheran has its own mesmerising beauty. A walk in forest to various points is just enchanting.

I visited Matheran in the month of Sep-2016. Unfortunately toy train was not working. The track was is very bad condition. Toy train is main attraction and I am planning to visit again and enjoy the ride. It seems train is still not functional. Without the proper maintenance we may loose this lovely train.
