The background story of the Circar Express

The train started its first service in the year 1967, twenty years after India gained back its independence from the British rulers. The Circar Express at that time ran between Madras Central and the famous Cocanada Port in Andhra Pradesh. Cocanada Port was then renamed, and it became the Kakinada Port. The Circar Express ran through the stations of Vijayawada, Nidadavolu, Bhimavaram, and Samalkot. Those were the most important stations at that time. After diesel engines were introduced in India, the Circar Express changed from diesel engine to steam engine. The earlier numbers of 43 and 44 also were replaced by numbers of 5 digits with the introduction of 5-digit numbers in the Indian Railways.
