Neral to Matheran Toy Train

Hello,

We want to visit Matheran by Toy train from Neral. We are unable to book using irtc website - says "no trains available". Kindly let us know if trains are still running as of november 2012 or discontinued. If discontinued what is the best alternate.

Thanks

Does anyone know if the Neral-Matheran train is currently operational (April 2013).? No luck trying to book tickets online.

There is no advance booking or reservation in Toy Train..Booking opens 45 minutes before the departure and tickets are issued on first come first serve basis..Due to high demand, you need to reach early at neral station and stand in queue to get the ticket....I had visited Matheran in Mid of Jan13 and went by Toy Train(9.00AM), we reached neral at 8.10 and got the ticket comfortably for 9.00AM Train...Again on March 23 I had gone to Matheran..this time by Van but saw Toy Train running perfectly...
