After getting down from broad gauge train at Kalka , walk towards your engine side. At the end to your right side will be the narrow gauge track and platforms. There is a booking counter on this platform. Food stalls are there so you can pack your lunch. Food is not served in this train ( it is served in Shivalik Exp ) so you can collect your packed lunch of rice and roti from the platform. However you will get snacks in stoppages as this train has many stops in between stations. Some time this train stops to give way the down side trains as this is a single track used by both ways.
Most of the time valley will be at your right side.
Simla railway station
After getting down from train you need to climb up to reach the main road. You can take the help of porters; they will take you to the hotel and ensure a room for you. Any way they will get their commission from the hotel owner but there is nothing wrong in engaging them if you don't have any hotel address or prior booking.
