Great pics. Thank you for sharing the details of the places as well.
Initially, when I saw the title of this thread, it looked like a dull subject. But, when I went in, as you know, it is a beautiful travelouge. Thanks again.

Thanks for sharing your trip magiceye. I visited Matheran many moons ago and it's lovely to see that it's still untouched. I remember walking from Neral to Matheran, it was so much fun. Great pix.

The gradient stretch up from Neral to Matheran can be used to test gradeability and driveability besides cooling system performance. Downhill is good to test brake fade and recovery characteristics. It is a very representatively steep gradient and gives good feedback. Then you cross the main railway line, come out in Murbad and then go to Ale Phata (good for handling, fantastic jumps @ 130 kmph), cross it and come out in Ahmednagar. From there you can go to Pathardi and Paithan. Just 400 kms away is Hyderabad. Everything can be done in a day. Very good to take in B grade road driveability feedback. Just for information.
