You will get the trains from almost all the Main Stations like from Bombay and Delhi to Kalka. Kalka is the railway Staion where you have to get down and change the train from Broad Gauge to Narrow Gauge line. Everyday ,Himalayan Queen and Howrah Express leave from Delhi to Kalka. There is special Coach fitted in this train for a group of 6 to 8. The train passes almost 103 tunnels and so many bridges, that this is a really good experience for everyone, not to miss. From Bombay, You will get Rajdhani Express / A.K. Rajdhani Express / Golden Temple Mail for Bombay to more..

You will get Deluxe and Luxury Buses from Delhi, from Kalka during whole day enrouting from National Highway 22. If you are a member of WIAA, You will also get a road map at a nominal fees for Kalka to Shimla or from Delhi to Shimla route.

It is highly recommended that it is very very Safe and Most Economic too, by travelling through these Buses as these Buses are always ON TIME. This way, You are indirectly helping the Government also.
