Deccan Queen | Monkey Hill | TShirt
Proudly wear this Deccan Queen | Monkey Hill | TShirt. This Tshirt is a tribute to the famous halt at Monkey Hill railway station by Deccan Queen train.
Descending from Pune to Mumbai the Deccan Queen Express makes a safety stop at Monkey Hill (MHLC). Monkey Hill is a railway station on the Bhor Ghat in Maharashtra, India. It serves as a technical halt at which trains stop to check brakes. Almost all trains traveling from Khandala to Palasdari stop at Monkey Hill. Formerly, a reversing station was located between Monkey Hill and Khandala. The remains of the reversing station can be seen near the Amrutanjan Bridge on the old Mumbai–Pune road.
Monkey hill point offers a scenic view from the train. The best season to view the place is monsoon. Lots of waterfalls & sometimes you feel traveling in the cloud's. At Monkey Hill station, peacocks, monkeys and rabbits appear so close to the tracks that the passengers practically feed them by hand. So the halt at monkey hill station is closely associated with the memories of traveling in Deccan Queen train.

CELEBRATING The DECCAN QUEEN | Dakkhan Ki Rani
The Deccan Queen, the iconic train that runs between Mumbai & Pune winding its way up the scenic Khandala Ghat passing through 28 tunnels to reach Pune! A train that has been, for the last 92 years an institution for many replete with its associated memories!
A train that started its journey as a Europeans only train in 1930 with many firsts – first fully electric train, first vestibular train and first to have a pantry car! Opened to Indians in 1940, it has since been the lifeline of Pune-Mumbai-Pune travel and the “business connect” between the two cities!
Central Railway recently launched the NEW! Deccan Queen. Inspired by the history and royalty of Pune and its monuments, National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad designed the new interiors and exterior to embody the colours and symbols of Royalty, Harmony, Imperium and Solace! The design embodies an understated imperium of the queen, in a powerful yet understated form with hints of dynamic elements in a linear flow, embellished with details from our heritage.
