The iconic Matheran toy train, a

major tourist attraction, will have one air-conditioned coach

from Saturday, Central Railway (CR) officials said.

The AC coach is being introduced to make the journey

more comfortable for the passengers, they said.

"It is for the fist time, the Neral-Matheran train

will have an AC coach," a spokesperson of the CR said.

"It will provide much-needed relief to the tourists

from the sweltering heat and make their journey more

exciting," he said.

The fare of this AC coach is Rs 415 per person, which

includes basic fare, reservation charges and the GST, the

official added.

The 111-year-old toy train, which was shut since May

2016 following derailments, had resumed full services in

January this year. The train is a big attraction for tourists

visiting the picturesque Matheran hill station in neighbouring

Raigad district.
