We knew a trip to Coonoor/Ooty would be incomplete without the toy train ride. Our kids were very excited about the train journey as I was too. Few tips - 1. The First class offers better privacy than the general compartment and at INR 100...More

The train from coonoor to Ooty is very overrated. It's way too overcrowded and view from train is not worth the wait and journey. One could get better views while on road travelling in Ooty.

Always book in advance the train ticket. It is better to book 2S seats, instead of CC. No much difference.

You need not book tickets online. Just go the station early, at least an hour if not early and stand in the queue for the tickets. You should be able to board the train with a valid ticket easily.
