Hill Toy train from Pathankot - Jawalamukhi- Kangra- Palampur -Joginder Nagar

Kangra valley train station at Pathankot
This beautiful meter gauge train service starts from Pathankot and ends at Joginder Nagar. There are several trains' starts at different times. All trains starts from Pathankot and some of them goes till the last point at Joginder Nagar. The distance of Pathankot to Kangra is 94 km and Kangra to Jogindar Nagar is 70 km. This hill train takes more time than normal plain area time as it travels at very low speed and as it is a single line so train stops to give way to other direction trains. The train passes through valley, rivers and many beautiful places and towards the last stretch of the journey snow capped Dhauladhar hills will be visible.

The Kangra Valley train station located little away from the broad gauge station at Pathankot. Tourists need to cover one over bridge to enter into the Kangra Valley train complex. It is very easy to walk up to this complex but little far in comparison with other hill station trains like Kalka Shimla, Mettupalem Ooty & NJP Darjeeling.

Kangra valley train over a bridgeThis train line of 164 KM long was constructed in the year 1926 and started operation in the year 1929. During first one hour of journey from Pathankot the train passes through small town and villages. Then it enters into valleys with big rivers and bridges. Most of the time valley and rivers were at the right side of the train. So try to get a seat at right side window while traveling from Pathankote. During the journey the train was stopping to give way to other direction train as this is a single track line. This was giving an opportunity to passengers to get down and take photo of the beautiful valleys and rivers.

As the train moves upward and the journey became more scenic with a distance view of snow capped Dhauladhar hills. Rivers became narrow with deep blue water and the train started taking curves by moving over high bridges and inside tunnels. The first tunnel came after three hours of our journey. There are few tunnels in this track in comparision to other toy train of Himachal running between Kalka and Shimla. Kangra Valley train
This train passes through many small stations which connect to near by popular tourist destinations. To go to Dharamsala one can get down at Kangra Mandir stop or at Kangra town and take a bus to Dharmasala , located at a distance of 20 KM and will take one hour from Kangra by bus. Kangra Valley train tickets are only available in its own stations. From Pathankot station one can get the tickets. Internet booking or advance booking from other part of Indian railway is not available. Fare varies from express to passenger trains. A second class ticket in a passenger train from Pathankot to Kangra is Rs 15 only. This train is one of the best hill trains of India but this line is not so popular among domestic tourist and mostly the locals use this train. The Kalka Shimla toy train is the popular one among tourist visiting this beautiful state.

vishnu dutt chopra20-08-2010
Hi, Vishnu chopra, On 21st june1997 I planned a trip for my family for shimla. We boarded Himalaya queen train and reached Kalka at 12.30a.m. From Kalka we boarded toy train. This train route was made by English men with the help of Indian engineers and it attracted travelers from all our India and abroad. Natural scenes and tunnels which are 100plus in nos. have different charm. One can see himachal Pradesh culture very closely here. At 6.30p.m. We reached shimla and checked in hotel Dalzell which is at the corner of mall road. During our 4 days stay we saw Institute of advance studies, zakhu temple and lot of walking in and around simla covering villages etc., this tour freshen up my family and give me break from my hectic schedule. Must visit place for family.
