A press release issued in Coimbatore said Southern Railway has decided to introduce a weekly trip by the heritage Nilgiris mountain rail on Fridays and Saturdays.
The train would take tourists from Udhagamandalam, formerly Ooty, to the town of Ketti and back, it said.
The service is in addition to the trip between Mettupalayam and Coonoor during weekends, the release said.
"The additional special train would be run on a trial till the first week of July and if the patronage is encouraging, we will run it throughout the year," it said.
The one-and-a-half-hour journey would include a trip to Ketti with a half-an-hour break in the town and then return to Ooty, the release said, adding that the train would have a diesel locomotive and passengers can buy tickets at the Udhagamandalam station, he said.
