Hello Atul Bhide,
There's always the possibility to see if the train you want to take will stop at request. Most of the time it will be mentioned in the timetable
. You can always ask train personnel at stations. As far as I know, you cannot make a train stop while you're at a platform, if it's not planned to stop there. If it's a train with stops at request the train will stop when there are people waiting. When you're in a train with stops on request you can press a button, which is easy to find, no problems here. In many trains it will be announced as well.
By the way: mountain trains, do you mean cog railways etc.? If I were you, I would always ask the train personnel at stations, just to make sure.
I hope this answers your questions.
