I've use all the Powers that Google allows me and the very little power the Indian Railway sites have and have found no clear answer as to the booking tickets for the Nilgiri Mountain Railway in particular. Most info is is pretty old and thus probably outdated and event he seemingly reliable sources contradict.

Can anyone clear this up? Do you need to book months in advance or are there no advance booking at all?

Depending on the results of my (as yet un)planned Nilgiri Mountain Railway I may base my following months travels on this so would be useful to have some first hand/accurate details.


First time poster by the way hopefully I'll find this community useful.

Welcome to IM

It is best to book in advance for the Nilgiri. There have been posts in the last couple of months from people who couldn't get the tickets that they wanted. You book in the same way as any other Indian Rail Ticket. Some guidelines are in this thread


Additional - For example First Class is already waitlisted for 1st,2nd and 3rd May. Tickets for 4th may will be released 8 a.m. IST tomorrow.
