It was inaugurated on 30 March 2005
Happywala Birthday My new favourite train 12217/18 Kerala Sampark Kranti Express .
You have successfully completed your 15 years of service here. You provided us the connectivity from Kochuveli to Chandigarh successfully. You are Longest Sampark Kranti of all over India here covering a distance about 3090 kms . On your every birthday we all railfans , railway officials as well as other fellow passengers celebrate you Birthday in Grand style as you are the king of all sampark kranti's here. May you longest and succesful services would be retained after lockdown also. Also I was expecting you to be diverted via GZB - MTC - MOZ - SRE - UMB after NZM but you cover a very long distance here
and my other railfan friends opinion here , I cant expect much about diversion here from NZM . Upto your 14 years of service here there was not a single cancellation yet here but on your 15th Birthday it had to be cancel due to Corona Outbreak here . Also you almost cover the route of Trivandrum Rajdhani Express (12431/32) till NZM and afterwards take route towards Chandiagarh . You are the most epic train ever , and also make us explore the beautiful section of Konkan railway as well . You are my 3rd Favourite Train followed by 12263/64 Pune - H. Nizamuddin Duronto , 12123/24 Deccan Queen and both the Vande Bharats here . And If I go to Konkan region or Goa by train from Panvel so I will really try to travel by this train . So I would like to wish you a Very Great Happy Birthday .

Mature political discussions are allowed in the Topics section,...
