Senior discount for foreigners was eliminated last year. Don't know about OCIs.

Hmm it seems like that the particular toy train does not allow Senior citizen discount.

As I recall, and I quite possibly read it here, it is available to Indian citizens only.

It is available also in Rajdhani/ Shatabdi/ Duronto train for passengers traveling for any purpose.

Note: Senior citizens’ concession is not admissible to foreign nationals and NRIs with effect from September 29 2016, except Foreign students studying in India - traveling to attend camps/seminars organized by Govt. of India and also visit to places of historical & other importance during vacations.

It is wrong to say that "the senior citizen concession no longer exists". Recently(only a week back) I had traveled from Howrah to Guwahati & back in 3AC. Both me and my wife are senior citizens as per Railway criteria and we had got the usual "senior citizen concessions or discount" as applicable. We are, however, Indian citizens; and I am not sure whether there is separate set of rules for non-Indian senior citizen passengers.
