The engine of the toy train is an 'X' Class steam locomotive, made in Switzerland. It was one of the last coal powered steam engine train but in last 2-3 years back diesel locomotives have taken over from steam for coonoor - ooty route . Train has 5 compartment, 4 general and 1 first class. General class ticket was 10 rs per head but the journey we had was priceless. The route is picturesque, breath taking, photogenic, mountains, pine trees, waterfall, tunnels, and mist. If you want to enjoy the journey make sure, you pick left hand side seats (Coonoor - Ooty) and if it's Ooty - Coonoor then right hand side seats. Then only you will get best view.
