Named after the Queen of Kittur, Rani Chennamma Exp at sunrise



One of my favourite train with superb in-train service. Named after the Queen of Kittur, Rani Chennamma Express is a daily train connecting the City of Bangalore with the Maharashtra city of Kolhapur. This is one of the prestigious trains of the South Western Railway. Kittur Chennamma was the Queen of Kittur, a princely state in Karnataka. She was one of the Indian female ruler to lead an armed rebellion against the British East India Company in 1824 because of the effect of doctrine of lapse. Bangalore City station is named after her brave commander Sangolli Rayanna, as Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna Bengaluru or KSR Bengaluru.
