So I've booked tickets on the Kalka-Shimla Railway reaching Barog on Tuesday morning and leaving on Friday evening. Our intention is just to have a relaxed holiday. For reasons of comfort, we would like to keep road transport to a minimum. Also, while we do hike, we're looking for non-slippery (monsoon!) morning walks rather than a "trek".

Does this seem like a doable and fun plan:

-Spend the first night at the Barog Station retiring room/cottage. Any tips on latest condition and booking (unable to get through to the station master on phone) will be appreciated.

-Take train to Kumarhatti and stay the next two nights there/Dagshai. What I've found so far is a place called Neovedic Resort.Anyone heard of it?

We plan to take the train one day to see Solan. Is it possible to visit the brewery? What else should we see?

As we value peace and quiet, we like the idea of a cantonment village like Dagshai-Kumarhatti, opposed to (what we imagine to be) noisy, industrial Solan. It being monsoon, also think that walking infrastructure may be better maintained in a cantonment. But are we better off staying in Solan for 2 nights than Dagshai?


Thanks!

Also, is the regular toy train First Class more comfortable than the RailMotor service?

The regular first class has a loo and the railcar doesn't.
The booking in Barog is online, please try.
Kumarhatti is very close to Barog. Neovedic is on the main road, a better choice may be Pinewood HPTDC at Barog which is right on top of the hill through which Barog made is famous tunnel.
AFAIK Dagshai does not have any commercial staying options.

you will be quite restricted in your movements if you travel by train only. would sugget road journey as you will be able to cover more areas. also barog station does not have many eating joints. plan and ensure before head reg dinner and all. neovadic is on kalka shimla highway. not anywhere dagshahi.
O mine is the lone trail, the hard trail, the best,
Wide wind, and wild stars, and hunger of the quest!
