The train route between Shimoga and Talguppa is VERY beautiful, where the train passes through the forest with an occassional village in between. If you take this journey in the monsoon season, even better. Look at the attached pics. This train runs pretty much empty between Shimoga & Talguppa, so you may get yourself a nice window seat (even in general/unreserved compartment) and enjoy the nature with cool wind on your face.

Best train to see the beauty of Koraput - Rayagada section, which is loaded with Tunnels, tall bridges, thick forests, hills, vast agricultural lands, village tribes, animals ... i mean the train route from Koraput to Rayagada is absolutely BEAUTIFUL.
This train runs fairly empty until Rayagada, so you wont find any trouble getting a window seat / door spot :-)
The mini-samosa's sold by the local vendors for breakfast after the train crosses Damanjodi are super yummy :-)
you are visiting Jagdalpur, there are 2 phenomenal waterfalls within an hours drive: Tiratgarh Falls & Chitrakot Falls (dont forget to take the boat ride here). Definitely worth visiting !!

If you are a Nature lover > The ~1 hour section between Yelahanka (YNK) and Gauribidanur (GBD) is very beautiful, where the train pass through vast plains, curving through several hills. Get a window seat to your right (YNK > GBD) to enjoy the view.
