Hi

Was wondering if the 1st class on the mountain train from metupalayam to Ooty has tinted windows? I read on India Mike that someone recommended travelling first class to avoid the noise? I am concerned that if I book 1st class I'll miss the amazing scenery. Have travelled on other trains in India and first class carriages have had tinted windows. Any feedback will be much appreciated.

Cheers

adkim

The windows are clear in first class, but it's not like first class on other trains, these are very old trains and first class is just a seat, nothing special, just less crowded than 2nd class.

Thanks for the info steve. will book first class on the ooty train. We prefer travelling 2nd class on the main trains because you can see where you're travelling through and the windows are open which is nice in the heat. Cheers, adkim
