The Fairy Queen
 

The oldest working steam locomotives in the world, the Fairy Queen made its maiden journey in the year 1855 for the erstwhile East Indian Railway. And rightly so, the Fairy Queen today holds the Guinness World Record for being the oldest locomotive in regular operation. It used to travel on the Howrah-Raniganj line and later in Bihar till 1908. In July 1997, the Indian Railway restarted its operation as a heritage train from Delhi to Alwar and from there the tourists are taken to world famous Sariksa Wildlife Sanctuary. It operates on the 2nd and the 4th Saturday of the months of October to March.

   
 
The Fairy Queen has only one AC chair car coach, which can accommodate a maximum of 50 tourists. There is also an attached pantry car to provide on board catering services to its privileged passengers. As an added attraction, the coach has a beautiful lounge in the front, which provides a scenic sight of the countryside. For your enjoyment numerous cultural programs are organized on the evening of the first day at the Hotel Sariska Palace.
   
 
The destinations covered by the train are Delhi, Alwar and the famous Tiger Reserve in Sariska. The two-day and one-night package is a beautiful gift for all wildlife lovers and definitely worth enjoying at least once in your lifetime.
