This entire route runs through the lush agricultural fields & villages of the famous "East Godavari" district. I found birds of many species on this journey, so if you are a bird lover, its a feast for you. (i even spotted 2 big fox crossing the tracks before the railbus).
Interesting facts:
Max speed of this rail car is 40 Kmph
also has a "mobile gateman" on-board (At the road crossings, he gets off the railbus & closes the gate manually!).
Tickets are also issued on-board. (Pls note that this railbus does not run on Tuesdays)
The end-to-end ticket from Kakinada to Kotipalli is a whopping 10 Rupees !
Closest 'main' railway station to access this route: Samalkot Jn (on Vijayawada - Visakhapatnam main line)
Town bus station along this route: Ramachandrapuram
Place of interest close-by: Yanam (The river Godavari ends its long journey from Nashik & joins the Sea here - Bhairavapalem)

Yes.. this railbus starts at CCT - Kakinada Town station (about 15 Kms away from Samalkot Jn) from Platform 1.
Just ask the people on the platform & they will show the place where it usually starts on PF 1.

Wish to travel at the earliest, I think this route will be similar to NDD - BVRT route, passing through lush green fields, coconut grooves ...
Thanks Harsha
