Artist's Description

Yes – twice a day – across a 46 Km route that has 30-40 degree inclines.

This Locomotive is the “Ooty Toy Train” – that starts off in the plains. Soon after is an impressive 21 km section through truly rocky terrain. The track passes over 26 viaducts, and twists and bends through 13 tunnels. After a steep climb, the train enters Coonoor, the little hill station known for its tea plantations. From here, the track is uphill till you reach Fern Hill at a height of 2,218m, the highest point on the railroad.

These little steam-locomotives are still running.
