This station is in outside Kotipalli town but if you want to go Kotipalli bus stand or Godavari River for boat just come out from railway station cross road many government buses runs on that road if show hand they stop for you also some local people gives you lift in their bikes, if you want to go Kotipalli bus stand or town catch the buses running on right side if you are going to Mandapeta Rajahmundry Kakinada or any other towns take left side running buses, buses stop if you show hand.

I'm regular traveller in this Railbus between Ramachandrapuram and Kotipaplli, tickets are given inside Railbus only, between Kakinada kotipaplli wherever you go or wherever you board ticket cost is rs10, except Ramachandrapuram all stations are not inside it's town or village so they stop this Railbus near road crossings if you show hand, also if you request them they drop you wherever you want, also the main thing is I seen many rail fans coming from different places to travel in this Railbus going back with disappointment because Cameras are not allowed inside this Railbus, this railbus comes with two LPs, two mobile gate man's and one ticket issuer from last some months I noticed that if any one taking photos or videos they are asking to close Cameras.

I travelled in this train from DWR to KJM on 10th Oct 2018. As usual the train reached / arrived at DWR at 20:00 hrs. I ordered two Special Thalis for Rs.100/- each. The taste was good. The Thali had Paneer Sabji + Aloo Matar + Daal + Jeera Rice + 3 Pulkas. The size of the Pulka was rather small but they were thick. 4 Pulkas would have been ideal. And the quantity of the Sabjis and Daal was much more than expected. So if you are 2 persons traveling, I strongly recommend you to order just one Special Thali and order one extra plate of Pulkas (3 pulkas for Rs.20/-). But remember, do not order these extra Pulkas when you order your Thali. First order your Thali and when it is delivered to you, only then ask the waiter to get you one extra plate of Pulkas. This will...
be sufficient for 2 persons. And you will have spent just Rs.120/- for 2 persons.

Yesterday (11:12)   12074/Bhubaneswar - Howrah Jan Shatabdi Express

I am posting this tip for 12074 based on my journey experiences from BLS to HWH. I traveled in the 2S class.
1. Cleanliness: The train compartment was clean enough. I expected it to be dirty but I was surprised. Kudos to the passengers for keeping the train clean as I did not spot any cleaning crew.
2. Food: On board catering is quite active. They sell all sorts of items like cake, biscuits, chips, cold drinks, lassi, water, tea, coffee etc. Prices are taken according to MRP. They were
selling items even after KGP.
3. Punctuality: Super punctual. It started with a delay of 30 mins from BBS but reached KGP with a delay of 15 mins. It would have reached Howrah with only a delay of 5 mins but was stranded at Tikiapara and Howrah outer for quite sometime owing to what amounts to about 20 mins delay. Train has a superb run.
4. Tickets: Tickets are easily available in 2S. Even at the last moment, about 100 seats were still left. For AC however, getting tickets is quite difficult as the y sell out quickly.
Also for a general tip, if you are boarding from one of the intermediate stations, getting overhead luggage space can be quite difficult. The same is the case for other CC trains too. Also, if you are a single traveler and have booked a window seat then you probably might not get it(especially if they are occupied by female and aged people). For aged people, I do not mind but really get irritating when healthy people do not move. Also, there is no trouble of daily passengers on this train. Overall I would give this train a 6/10 based on my experience.

Sep 16 2017 (00:53)   SHM/Kolkata Shalimar (3 PFs)

Those who are travelling from Howrah by bus to Shalimar, make sure you board the bus no 55 or the B.Garden-Esplanade mini bus. The reason for that is both these buses take you closer to the station than any other bus on the route. When you are on-board the bus, ask the conductor to drop you off at the 'Shalimar 3-no gate' stoppage and from there, it's a straight walk to the station. Should take you about 4-5 mins.
For those who are coming from the Rabindra Sadan Side, avail the white buses like Barasat-B.Garden or Sealdah-B.Garden and ask the conductor to drop you off at the same stoppage. Other buses include 213/1.
the name suggests, the Sealdah-B.Garden bus is a direct link from Sealdah to Shalimar and so if you are travelling from Sealdah to Shalimar or in the reverse route, do avail that bus.
