interesting facts
train names and what they mean:
1.“travancore trains” – trivandrum-shornur venad express and trivandrum-ernakulam vanchinad express, both names being the erstwhile names of travancore. people who had their schooling before 1950 would remember, their “national anthems” swore allegiance and sang glories to vanchinad
2. ernad (nagercoil-mangalore ernad express), once a state, now a taluk in malappuram (and more importantly, home
to the ex junior railway minister).
3. kanyakumari-jammu tawi himsagar express connects himalayas with the indian ocean and gets the record for the longest journey (in time and distance) in india
4. trivandrum-gorakhpur raptisagar express connects the arabian sea to rapti river at gorakhpur, in eastern up, just a few miles from nepal.
5. bangalore-nagercoil island express, which once ran from bangalore to cochin harbour terminal in willingdon island.
6. gurudev express was named after rabindranath tagore (called gurudev in much of north india) or social reformer sree narayana guru (called gurudevan in kerala),
