Neral-Matheran Toy Train makes a remarkable comeback

Ferries 3.7 K passengers and registers revenue of Rs.4.81 lakh in just 9 days

Vistadome Coach is also immensely popular o­n Neral -Matheran section

Matheran is the nearest and the most popular tourist destination for the citizens of Mumbai, Pune and surrounding area. The Neral-Matheran Toy train, which is more than 100 years old, is o­ne among the few mountain railways in India.

The Neral- Matheran track was washed out due to heavy downpour in 2019. Since then Central Railway has been rebuilding and restoring the rail line o­n a war footing. The narrow gauge line winding up the mountains from Neral to Aman Lodge was finally ready and services o­n the line resumed o­n 22.10.2022.

Passengers have welcomed back the toy train services with unbridled joy and have given an overwhelming response.

From the period 22.10.2022 to 30.10.2022, a total of 3,698 persons including 229 in Vistadome, 378 in first class and 3,091 in second class have travelled registering a revenue of Rs.4,84,141/-. This includes revenue from sale of Vista Dome tickets amounting to Rs.1,49,995/- which is almost 31% of the total amount.

Central Railway regularly runs shuttle services for passengers between Aman Lodge and Matheran. These figures indicate the important role of Railways in providing a safe and comfortable travel to its passengers coming to this tourist destination.

Central Railway is popularizing this place not o­nly as a major tourist destination but also as a place which takes o­ne close to Nature. It provides the thrill of watching Nature closely along with a memorable ride in the Toy train thus immersing o­neself in the serenity of the natural environment of Matheran.
