Munnar would be an interesting option. The route can go as follows.
From Bodinayakanur in Tamilnadu ( branch line from Madurai), via Munthal-Kottagudi ( along the Kottagudi river ) to 'Top station' at the Kerala-TamilNadu border and further on along the Mattupetty dam reservoir to Munnar. The route can be a meter gauge like the NMR route.
This will be a special route too. About a century ago, the Kundala valley railway used to connect Munnar to Top station with a narrow gauge railway.
This was used for transporting Tea to the rest of the country. The tea would be transported from Munnar to Top station by railway. From there, a ropeway and cable car used to take the tea down the hills and by road to Bodinayakanur. The line was washed out in a flood in 1924 and never reconstructed.
The route can be re-started in pretty much with the same alignment as earlier and it will be really good to see a historic route being restarted.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
