Kenneth Anderson and the railways-4

Concluding this set of posts with some more videos and pictures of this route, with emphasis on the Dorabavi viaduct and its remnants. The remnants can be seen near the Bogada tunnel in the direction of Chelama (or Nandyal).

First, the mileage details from a current railway website:

New stations at Nandipalli and Kistamsettipalli have come up in recent years.

Here we have a rather detailed video which covers the Nandyal-Giddalur section, which gives a reasonable view of the forests. It does show all the stations listed above.

One thing this vlogger missed was the remains of the Dorabavi viaduct, which can be seen on the other side of the track.

Doubling of the track between Nandyal and Giddalur is expected to start in 2022 and may take a few years.

Basic details of the viaduct from a website of the railways:

Here a guide takes you around the remains of the viaduct (Commentary in Telugu with English subtitles. Among other things, you get a good view of the present line from a height and can see a long goods train passing).

There are, of course, a wide variety of blogposts and videos covering the Nallamalla region along the rail line. In this and earlier posts I have included some which I felt were more useful.
