This railway line, built in 1930 during the British rule, was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This engineering marvel is a 96 km long narrow gauge track and takes about 5-6 hours for the entire journey as it rides up the hills at a speed of 25 km/hr. With 102 tunnels on the entire route, the train journey is an experience by itself.
Rajesh Agarwal, a member of the board, said, “It is a part of transformational changes and updation of trains and stations to the next level of heritage class,”. Though the fair and schedule of the coaches was yet to be decided, it is expected to run regularly.
