I plan to take the Kalka-Simla toy train in early May so I thought I'd book a ticket now to avoid the summer holiday rush. However, on Cleartrip I get four options:

- Himalyan Queen
- Kalka Simla Exp
- Klk Sml Pass
- Shivalk Dlx Exp

When checking the availability of the first two train I get the message, "Could not get current availability. Please try again." Does anyone know why this might be?

Would you recommend one of these trains over another? I was thinking of taking the Shivalk Dix Exp as it doesn't stop.

For some trains on the Kalka - Shilma route the ARP (Advance Reservation Period) is 30 days. You can not book the tickets before 30 days of the journey date.

Ah right.

Do you think I should just book the Shivalk Dlx Exp to guarantee a train?
