Going to India in March and would really like to pop up to Shimla. Would really like to go by train if at all possible. I think I can get from Delhi to Kolka??? on a standard train and can then pick up the Toy Train up to Shimla. Would like to get there as early as possible then get back to Delhi late the next day.
Does anyone know if it is possible? Cheers.

Delhi to Kalka by standard train and Kalka to Shimla by Himalayan Queen/Shivalik Deluxe. It will be afternoon by the time you reach Shimla. Avoid Himalayan Queen If you can.

Possible to return the next day, provided you book the tickets in advance for the entire journey. I am not sure how much can you see or do in such a short time.

The toy train takes around six hours in each direction. You could save time e.g. on the Shimla-Kalka return, by taking a taxi as the road trip is quicker.

Shimla is worth spending two or more nights in. I usually spend a week there.
