The "toy" train to carry guests to the hotel's is not currently working. It also costs about $10 dollars to get your bags hauled up to the resorts.

I visited Matheran in the month of Sep-2016. Unfortunately toy train was not working. The track was is very bad condition. Toy train is main attraction and I am planning to visit again and enjoy the ride. It seems train is still not functional. Without the proper maintenance we may loose this lovely train.

The train starts from Neral station for Matheran. It is a easy attraction for young as well as elders. However, We took the last local to Neral in night and took the upward journey by trekking in night. The trek was really amazing and memorable. You reach the top by morning before the train arrives. After spending a couple of... More
