    We a group of friends will be going to Lonavala in mid-December and we were wondering if there are any local trains from Pune to Lonavala which we can get.
    Getting a taxi would be too costly and plus there is more than 4 of us and going in a taxi would not be comfortable even though the journey is only an hours drive.

    Please give details of the local train from Pune to Lonavala.
