On Shed

The Nilgiri Mountain Railway in Tamil Nadu is a part rack and pinion line owing to the ruling gradient of 1/25 and it runs from Mettupalayam through Coonoor to Udagamandalam. (Ooty)

At present the steam engines work the section from Mettupalayam to Coonoor with diesels taking the train up to the summit at Ooty. The line reaches an elevation of 7228 ft, climbing over 6000 ft through the Nigiri Hills.

This picture was taken on a November evening in 2013 in Mettupalayam after we had travelled down the route from Ooty. With the fading light, and the need to drive to Mysore, my snapping was done in a hurry. It’s an area that I would love to visit again, but at a more leisurely pace.
