  • THIS quirky site has quite a bit going on from a museum and loads of trains and rolling stock to a chance to rattle round on a little track yourself. Don't make the mistake I did which was to pay for....  more

  • This is a must visit place if you are visiting Delhi. It's one of the well maintained and affordable places. You can buy tickets online for entry ,rides and shows. It has ample parking space. We visited it on Saturday,when many schools brought kids for museums and train rides. Kids loved their outing followed by lunch time at its garden,basking in the sun . This place offers train rides - normal train ride,toy train ride and they used to offer steam train rides too(but due to lots of difficulty and risk,they stopped it for the time.) You can book a guided trip ,which gives you glimpses in old trains,which is closed with normal tickets. They also provide simulation train experience with different tickets. You can pick whatever you would like to experience with different ticket options. The train canteen is also good. We couldn't miss the good aroma of its food and had good lunch. It also has one other vendor offering snacks,tea,coffee and ice cream. The souvenir shop was also good. We bought some freeze magnets and key chains. You can also buy train models there at affordable prices.
  • It's a peaceful & super fantastic place to hang out with kids, adults & elderly. The cost of entry tickets is Rs 50 per person but on weekdays & on weekends, Sat-Sun, the rates will be double. You will love riding the Joy train, the ticket costs just 20 rupees. Rest rides like Toy ride & Steam Engine Simulator are Costly. You can book your ticket online in advance but they charge u with the CONVENIENCE FEE so better book at the window.😀
