Food --

Railway Canteen is available b/w pf 1 & 2. Taste is really very good. Must Try.

Railfanning ---

You can go to Steam Loco Shed which is just at beside the station. Around 5 locos were there. A good amount of around 30-35 MG coaches were lying at Coaching Depot.
Also you can visit the Railway Museum which is just b/w the Steam Loco Shed & Station.

Bus stand is 500m away from the station, where plenty of buses ply to Coimbatore, Tiruppur, Coonoor, Ooty & Mysuru.
If you want to hire a car to Coonoor/Ooty that's also available only you have to bargain with them.

Cloak Room is available.

The train from MTP to ONR takes 3.30 hrs but by road it can be reached in an hour. If you are traveling by road from MTP -- ONR then be ready to capture some mesmerizing shots to the left of the road.
