Train Driver View - Araku Valley Ghat Section ( Part of VIzag - Kirandul Electric Line)

Had the opportunity to be in the drivers cabin when the driver was going through the mountain section. There are over 50+ tunnels and the ride to Araku Valley from Vizag takes a full 3 hours Visiting Araku Valley by train from Visakhapatnam by Kottavalasa Kirandul line. One of the best way to cover the Araku valley is by going there by Train. This train line is built specially to carry iron ore to Visakhapatnam port from the mineral reserves of Chattisghad state. Iron ores fines transported from mines at Bailadilla through this train line to Visakhapatnam port for export and for consumption of Visakhapatnam steel plant. In India most of the hill trains run in a meter gauge or narrow gauge lines but this is a broad gauge line passes through Shimiliguda station which is the highest broad gauge station of India at 996.32 mt above MSL. There is a board at the platform with details of height and saying about the specialty of this station.
