The Amraoti State Railway was a short Indian State broad gauge(BG) branch railway connecting Amraoti to the Great Indian Peninsula Railway (GIPR) mainline at Badnera [1].

The line with a length of 5½ miles(8.8km) opened in Feb 1871 and worked by Great Indian Peninsula Railway as the ‘GIPR Amraoti Branch’ [2].

The line was important to transport Amraoti cotton to Bombay via Baderna on the Nagpur branch of the GIPR [3].

The 1870-71 ‘Annual Report on Railways in India’ [4] gives the spelling as the “Oomrawuttee Railway” . This being the old spelling of Amraoti.
