A new and updated tribute to the relentless campaign by railway enthusiasts to keep this unique railway in running condition. This second edition gives a history of the metre-gauge rack railway from Mettupalaiyam to Ootacamund (Ooty), still partially operated by Swiss designed 0-8-2 rack tanks some of which have been recently built at Golden Rock near Bangalore. With details of the rolling stock and some of the background politics that have resulted in the service on offer today.
By V.M. Govind Krishnan, who has a deep understanding of the railway and its surroundings
