See the Nilgiri Mountain Steam Railway, in Tamil Nadu, India.
The Journey ends at Coonoor - 28km, 5616ft - main intermediate station on the line to Comatore from Ooty. Coonoor is at the site of the locomotive workshops as well as the top end of the rack rail. Trains must reverse a short distance before continuing their climb to Ooty. It is normal for the locomotive to be changed here with diesel traction being normal for all trains to Ooty, except on this film, which is STEAM!
