Lalbagh, with his imposing and menacing looks, is definitely a pride of the MAS-SBC line.

If you are going to Chennai suburbs on the AJJ-MAS line, this train is quite convinient in the day time for its halt at Tiruvallur. A local EMU from Kadambattur generally leaves once this train crosses Kadambattur to Chennai Central and also majorly lands up on the same platform as this train- If you are an unreserved ticket holder changing to that train is easier as another local ticket is not required and it connects to the stations of tirunindravur, avadi, ambattur etc-so overall gives a good connectivity with that connection

But in Mumbai I think one can board a local from KYN to any suburbs like Mulund or Dombivili even if one has a reserved seat. I guess we can do the same there also. Also passengers heading towards the MSB-TBM line can book tickets upto TBM on NIGHT TRAINS only and change to an EMU at Park

Its better to go and take a open ticket at bangalore city and board the UR coaches of this train- the number of UR coaches exceed the reserved coaches and the conditions in them are better than the reserved coaches as we atleast feel satisfied of not paying reservation charges
This is the best train to travel between the cities when no tickets are available- just go and capture the seat- Train is put on the platform early so its easier to secure the seat if we too are early- Daily office goers generally come in late and dont bother a seat and long distant passengers are lesser by this train

Seen this arriving @PF4 for 2 days. Any idea if this is going to be the regular PF. My pickups may depend on this or else, I will have to pick up from East or Cantonment
Question : Does 12609 arrive at PF4 in KJM ? The local vendors replied that long trains will use PF4 and others will use PF3 towards SBC !!!!
