Ooty: Along the NMR


Coonoor : along the NMR.
We could not take the whole journey from Ooty to Mettupalyam but we did take the Ooty-Coonoor section in both directions Saturday afternoon. This section is 'normal gradient' and so the rack and pinion system is not used and the train moves with a diesel engine, the section after Coonoor towards Mettupalyam is 'steep gradient' where the rack and pinion is used and the train runs with a steam engine.
