Shimla: In order to ease the sudden rush of tourists during the summer vacations, a ‘Holiday Special’ train would very soon be chugging along the picturesque Kalka-Shimla route.

“The special toy train will be launched in the state,” said Shimla Railway Station Superintendent, GS Rajput.

During the summer season, the Northern Railways runs this special train every year.

Meanwhile, Himachal Pradesh Transport Corporation (HPTC) has not yet started the services of special buses leading to a rush for a seat in Volvo buses. Tourists are queuing up for advance bookings on routes from Shimla to Delhi and Manali.

Meanwhile, Vineet Kumar, HPTDC MD, said the department would start services soon. “Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) will start two special buses on May 1 on Delhi-Manali route,” he said.

The tourists will be provided with all kind of facilities in these special luxury buses, he informed.
