This is the best weekend trip from Mumbai and Pune. The journey starts at Neral, about halfway between Mumbai and Pune. Although the track is only 20 kilometres long, the train takes two and a half hours to reach the top of the hill as it moves slowly through the scenic route. Some people munch the peanut chikki on the ride, while others look out the window. The frequency of trains is more during weekends. Hills carpeted with green forests, refreshing cool breeze and possible sights of wild animals make this journey scenic. Train service might not be available during monsoons. The toy train comprises of one first-class coach, three-second class coaches and two brake vans.
