Here is a piece of good news for toy train lovers. The Central Railway (CR) has decided to restart the toy train shuttle services between Aman Lodge and Matheran from January 26 2020.
On Friday, during divisional railway users consultative committee meeting, CR said that the restoration work is on a full swing which will be completed before January 26, 2020, and toy train services on the 3 km stretch in the hill station will resume from January 26 in the new year.
After the meeting, Shailesh Pandya, divisional railway users consultative committee member told Mirror, “Railway officials told us that restoration work in the full stretch (Neral to Matheran) is going on but this will take some more time, that is why it is decided to start the shuttle services between Aman Lodge and Matheran first. When asked about the date they promised us January 26, 2020. "
The toy train services were suspended this year during monsoon due to heavy rainfall and landslides in the area.
