Thanks to SR Officials along with SWR for 52 yrs Brindavan SF 12639/40 was Rekindled from 6/2016 running with 15 2S Chaircar, 7 UR coaches & 2 SLR (is 2 coach bigger than Lalbagh exp). So now for Brindavan UR coach is crowded. Therefore, if possible Augment "7 coach UR-Chaircar coach" to enable to get fresh air instead of present 7 old coaches running crowded Pax sweat due to no fresh air from Krishnarajapuram to Bangarper/Kuppam/Jolarpettai Standing, but Saturday and Sundays upto Ambur crowd. Hope the Concerned SR/SWR Officials Will Do Something to Arrange Atleast 7 UR-Chaircar Coach at Your earliest Convenient Time if possible along with its original SLOT to reach Chennai early to get State Buses !!

Brindavan SPEED made slowdown & made Late running than Time-Table, non-commercial stop @ BYPL, PC and 3 CC A/c and 2S removed in a hurry. Therefore, Speed made less with heavy 24-coach passenger load another delay to reduce Speed at Curves. So Middle-class & Aam Admi passengers faced unexpected 30 min. delayed Slot from 2012 Time-table issue happened first time as per Times of India report to run 8 coach A/c DD train for rich from 4/2013 is no issue. Interestingly during Election time several Party Leaders wants middle class & Aam Admi votes and then forget to provide at least by increasing SF train Speed further to reach on all Intermediate-Stations and final destination reach On-time performance atleast when Hon'ble PM and Railway Mantri start running Bullet Train from 2022/23.

A must read excerpt by V Anand who was GM of Southern Railway from IRFCA:
"In those days, the Brindavan Express was perhaps the fastest train on the Indian Railways and I remember driver Mc Gee (there was a write up about him in the popular Tamil Weekly 'Ananda Vikadan') once covered the distance of 140 Kms. from Jolarpettai to Bangalore Cantonment in 1 hour and 40 minutes. The Brindavan Express was known for its punctuality and the travellers waiting at Madras Central could set their watch at 19:45 Hrs. by... more...
the arrival of 40 Up Brindavan Express. One day the train was 5 minutes late. The Chief Operating Superintendent (COPS) Mr. Godferry Saldhana and Mr. E.S. Muthukrishnan, Chief Mechanical Engineer happened to be on the platform. When the train came to a halt, the COPS walked up to the engine and the following conversation ensued: COPS: Mc Gee! you are late! Mc Gee: So would you be, Sir, if you had to pass loop lines at five stations between Arakkonam and Madras. Suffice it to say that the COPS called for the control charts and other records next day and ensured that the Brindavan Express would be given a line clear right through the main line. Such was his faith in Express drivers of the calibre of Mc Gee."
