View from the Niligiri Passenger Train (NMR) as it makes its way through the mountains taking about about 3.5 hrs to go to Mettupalayam (near Coimbatore) from Ooty. It was sheer joy to travel on the meter gauge steam locomotives which is one of the oldest mountain railways in India (since 1899). In July 2005, UNESCO added the NMR as an extension to the World Heritage Site of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway.
