After a 7-year long hiatus, the toy train ride at Nandankanan Zoological Park is set to roll out again from Friday (October 8).
All possible arrangements have been made by the concerned administration for resuming the train services. Tourists will get to experience this train ride through the woods of the zoological park.
The Mahanadi Coalfields Limited has provided the financial assistance for the Toy train project. A broad gauge of 1.2 km track has been constructed for the train and the train has 4 coaches to accommodate 74 passengers.
Moreover, the train is scheduled to operate between 9 AM To 5PM with total 12 trips, ferrying around 700 tourists every day. Moreover, the foundation stone of the new rope way facility will also be laid in the zoo.
Almost after a decade-long halt, the ropeway services will begin in the zoological park again. These two attractions of the Nandankanan Zoological Park were closed due to high maintenance cost.
However, the news of recommencement of these services brought delight for the tourists visiting the zoological park.
