WARNING - I heard that the tracks damage in the recent monsoon was so extensive that the hill railway will be out for at least a year, loads of the bigger bridges and the approaches to them were washed away.

To get to/from Matheran you first need to get to Neral Junction.

There are only 2 'express' trains that stop at Neral Jn.

T 1007…Mumbai CST…07:15, Neral Jn…08:43, Pune…11:15
T 1029…Mumbai CST…09:00, Neral Jn…10:31, Pune…13:05

Mumbai - Neral fare: -

Air con Chair class = Rs 167
Bookable 2nd class seat (not air-con) = Rs 50


Good old Indian Railways has decided that the same trains will not stop at Neral on the way back to Mumbai, so there is only one 'Express' train between the two.

T 1024…Pune…07:00, Neral Jn…10:10, Mumbai CST…12:20

Neral - Mumbai fare: -

2 tier air con = Rs 387
3 tier air con = Rs 213
Sleeper class (non air con) = Rs 121

At all other times take a ‘frequent’ local train to/from Karjat 13 km south or
Kalyan Jn. 33 km north. From both of these stations there are ‘loads’ of
Express trains to either Mumbai CST or Pune, (+ many other places)

Below is a list of local trains that run between Mumbai CST (VT) and Neral Jn. it is only a selection and not the complete list, I compiled this list about 2 years ago, times may have changed slightly.

Mumbai CST departures and (Neral Jn. arrivals)

....05:30 (07:40), ....07:30 (09:20), ....08:24 (10:13), ....10:52 (12:42),
....11:25 (13:15), ....11:55 (14:06), ....12:42 (14:42), ....13:40 (15:29),
....14:40 (16:30)


Neral Jn departures and (Mumbai CST arrivals)

....07:41 (09:32), ....08:13 (10:17), ....08:47 (11:00), ....14:59 (17:11),
....15:44 (17:39), ....16:40 (18:32), ....17:29 (19:24), ....18:38 (20:34),

Quote:
Update by indiamike on 30/01/06

To update this thread, the 'Joy Ride' which uses the old steam powered locomotives not the new fangled Diesel ones, is up to Rs 240 per person. The times are are 10am and another at 12:40pm. The limit is now five tickets have to be sold for the train to run. It took us a couple of days of waiting until there was enough interest to get it to run since at that price not many people were buying tickets.

Lots of fun though.

Bangalore - Shimoga Town - Talguppa (Jog Falls)

Jog Falls, India's highest waterfall is 16 km from Talguppa station, an overnight train from Bangalore, connects at Shimoga Town with the metre gauge train for the scenic journey to Talguppa.

Shimoga - Talguppa, The Bull Run, by Ranganath Eunny.

T 6227 Daily...Bangalore City 23:00, Shimoga Town 04:55

T 6228 Daily...Shimoga Town 23:00, Bangalore City 05:00

Distance 274 km.

FC = Rs 446 FC may no longer be available on this train.
SL = Rs 148
-----------------------------------------------------

T 241…Except Su…Shimoga Town…06:00, Talguppa 09:25

T 244…Except Su…Talguppa…18:30, Shimoga Town…21:55

Distance 98 km.

II = Rs 20

In Shimoga Town, be careful, the train to Talguppa goes from a different platform (I don’t know where, as I waited on the same platform feeding a dog and missed the connection)

I wasted Rs 20 on that train ticket.

There are buses to the Karnataka coast and Goa from Jog Falls, also Jeeps to share.

All (rail) roads lead to Udaipur.

Edited in September 05 to add the following.

This is an old thread, the line between Udaipur and Chittaurgarh has now been converted to broad gauge, so any train listed below that has stops at both Chittaurgarh and Udaipur will now terminate at Chittaurgarh or may be cancelled, any questions, feel free to ask.

Check the following link first for the new trains to/from Udaipur.


Udaipur to/from Sawai Madhoppur, Jaipur, Bharatpur, Mathura & Delhi.

______________________________ __________________

"I would love to go to Udaipur, but it's so hard to fit into my itinerary" is probably the most popular quote from PM's and e-mails I receive.

There are various ways of getting to/from Udaipur; I will only give the train option.

A car & driver on a circular route from Jaipur or Delhi is a good alternative to train travel in this region, there would be many advantages, but also some disadvantages, though this subject is best left to another thread.

Delhi SR = Delhi Sarai Rohilla
Delhi ND = New Delhi
Chitt = Chittaurgarh
ADI = Ahmedabad
Dun = Dungarpur
Deogarh = Devgarh Mandariya station, for Deogarh
Sawai = Sawai Madhoppur (for Ranthambhore)

I have added a few places that tourists may be interested in.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

All trains are daily.

Delhi - Jaipur - Ajmer - Chittaurgarh - Udaipur.

T...9615...Delhi SR 14:10, Ajmer 00:15, Chitt 05:40, Udaipur 09:05, (1A, 2A, FC, SL.)
T...9943...Delhi SR 20:50, Ajmer 07:50, Chitt 12:45 (dep 14:00), Udaipur 18:00, (2A, FC, SL.)
T...9765…Jaipur 20:00, Ajmer 23:15, Chitt 03:50, Udaipur 07:20, (1A, 2A, FC, SL.)
T...431...Chitt 04:10, Udaipur 08:10, (FC, SL.)


T...9944...Udaipur 08:00, Chitt 12:20 (dep 15:25), Ajmer 21:30, Delhi SR 07:05, (2A, FC, SL.)
T...9616...Udaipur 18:15, Chitt 21:25 (dep 21:45), Ajmer 02:10, Delhi SR 11:50 (1A, 2A, FC, SL.)

T...9766...Udaipur 20:50, Chitt 23:45 (dep 00:05), Ajmer 04:15, Jaipur 07:15, (1A, 2A, FC, SL.)

Also between Ajmer/Jaipur and Chittaurgarh

T...9770...Chitt 06:15, Ajmer 10:55, Jaipur 14:15 (2A, FC, SL.)
T...582 ...Chitt 13:45, Ajmer 19:10, (FC, SL.)

T...581 …Ajmer 05:40, Chitt 12:10, (FC, SL.)
T...9769…Jaipur 12:00, Ajmer 15:25, Chitt 19:30, (2A, FC, SL.)
T...443 …Ajmer 17:45, Chitt 23:30, (SL.)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ahmedabad – Udaipur

T...432 ...ADI 07:15, Dun 12:55, Udaipur 17:15, (FC, SL.)
T...9944...ADI 23:05, Dun 04:08, Udaipur 07:40, (2A, FC, SL.)

T...9943...Udaipur 19:45, Dun 23:04, ADI 04:25, (2A, FC, SL.)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jodhpur – Marwar Jn – Deogarh – Udaipur

A change of train at Marwar Junction is necessary to get between Jodhpur and Udaipur, parts of the journey between Marwar and Udaipur are said to be very scenic.

Devgarh Mandariya is (I think) the station for Deogarh.

T...1JM ...Jodhpur 10:45, Marwar Jn. 13:15, (II only.*)
T...483 ...Marwar Jn. 14:25, Deogarh 16:51, Udaipur 22:00, (II only.*)

T...484 ...Udaipur 06:10, Deogarh 10:48, Marwar Jn. 13:40, (II only.*)
T...2JM ...Marwar Jn. 14:20, Jodhpur 17:00, (II only.*)

* Any train with only second class unreserved (II) may be very crowded, it may also be empty, and you would be advised to go to the train the day before and look for yourself, and also ask the ticket man on the train.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

An alternative route from Delhi or from Agra via Ranthambhore and Kota, though you will need to get another train from Chittaurgarh.

Delhi/Agra Fort – Sawai Madhoppur – Kota – Bundi – Chittaurgarh

T...9020A...Delhi ND 22:10, Sawai 05:05, Kota 06:50 (dep 08:00), Bundi 08:38, Chitt 11:25, (1A, 2A, SL.)
T...282 ...Agra Fort 19:00, Sawai 01:48, Kota 05:25 (dep 06:30), Bundi 07:20, Chitt 10:55, (SL.)

T...296 ...Chitt 00:50, Bundi 03:40, Kota 05:40 (SL.)
T...9019A ...Chitt 14:25, Bundi 16:45, Kota 18:00 (dep 20:00), Sawai 21:45, Delhi ND 06:05, (1A, 2A, SL.)
T...281 ...Chitt 15:15, Bundi 18:08, Kota 19:50 (dep 21:00), Sawai 23:40 (estimate), Agra Fort 06:55, (SL.)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


One of the metre gauge lines from Chittaurgarh to Udaipur is being converted to broad gauge at the moment, this work has been going on since at least December 2001 so must be nearing completion, there will then be a direct broad gauge line to Delhi/Agra via Bundi/Kota/Sawai Madhoppur, anything I find out will be posted here immediately.

Getting to/from Ahmedabad. ....

...Might not seem like a good idea for a post, but it gives people extra options from southern Rajasthan.

Whilst in Ahmedabad I recommend you visit the Sabarmati (Gandhi's) Ashram, a very relaxing and educational place, you will need at least a couple of hours there, though 4 or 5 hours would be better.

Ok, Can I just say, that this man, Steven_ber, IS the "Train Man". He single handedly, planned pretty much my entire trip!!

I would have been completely lost, on my first trip to India, without Steven. Now, with his help, I feel relatively confidant that I can survive and thrive on this incredible journey that awaits me in less than a week!


Cheers to Steven !!!



Oh p.s. Steve, I can't wait for the late night chanting!!!!

Thanks Again Steve!!

great post, this information will certain be very handy while planning my trip.

just one question. How crowded will the trains be between 15 October and 15 November? Will I need to make reservation many days in advance or will 1/2 do. I'm planning to use mostly sleepers, maybe 2c AC on longer stretches.

Smile Attaboy, Steven

As promised, I am highlighting Steven's hair splitting efforts in organizing train journeys for all of us. I had asked him a "train" question on an unrelated thread..... so I now repeat it on the correct(?) thread.

Steven hasn't answered my question: Are the Railways still issuing bus tickets? (..... actually rail-cum-bus tix )

I haven't referred to Indian Bradshaw for quite a while, so I really don't know.

Sorry to digress folks..... I got a timely opportunity to highlight Steven's painstaking work. For those who have seen the Indian Bradshaw, it requires a magnifying glass over 'n above your normal reading glasses. Its a pain. Dear Steven is taking meticulous trouble for all of us.

Thanks, Steven. I actually happen to know where the shoe pinches.
