The invigorating air and the delights of scenic hill resort provide a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city .

So Folks ! Are you ready , to start on an out of the ordinary jorney up to the hill ?

The Kalka-Shimla Line  

The Kalka-Simla line weaves in and out of tunnels and over multi-level arched bridges that look like Roman aqueducts. The mountains were conquered head on with heavy engineering and one goes through 103 tunnels on the 94 km journey.

The Delhi Gazette, in 1847, predicted that if a railway line was built between shimla and Kalka one mighrt see a shift in the seat of the government to a more salubrious spot. This prophecy did indeed come true and shimla became  the summer capital of the Raj and the most important hill station in India

The Kalka –Shimla line was opened in 1903. In 1956 the steam engines  were replaced by diesel rail-car, first-class only and known as the ‘Shimla Queen’ is run in addition to the little train to connect with the Howrah-Kalka Mail coming in from Delhi and Calcutta .
