2:since i visited ooty in off season,the crowd was less,and its easy to get ticket(take exact change,+1/ticket is taken as comission)
PIC 3,4:Getting tickets first isn't enough,there's another hurdle.."queue system" yes!!,be at this point as early as possible,i am here by
11.40am for 14.00pm train(there are seats for '40' pax bound to MTP.allocated on first cum first serve type.)
