      You can book the tickets online at IRCTC website at irctc.co.in. Select source station as Kalka (KLK) and Destination as Simla (SML) (note the spelling). The bookings for toy trains open 30 days in advance only. The tickets for Himalayan Queen, Shivalik Deluxe and rail car can be booked online
