It has been a week since I travelled in 12609. It was wonderful trip from chennai to Bangalore in a day train. Could some amazing views of nature and of course rail. Especially high speed crossing by mysore chennai shatabdi express and Bangalore chennai Dd which I couldn't capture. Thanks for motorolo for coming up with moto g. A budget phone with good camera. Never missed my camera. So finally here are few pics of the trip which I could capture to share with fellow iri members. Hope you will like it.

TRIP Report.
Date of Jouney: 05-July-2014
Coach: D4
From: Chennai
To: Bangalore
I wish RB/SR/SWR should consider a train between MAS-SBC in between Brindavan and Intercity. After 7.50am, the next train available is only at 1.35pm. Time Gap of 5hr 45min. I think if some train is introduced around 10.30 or 11. It will be good and surely will get good patronage.
The train was waiting at MAS PF3 for it departure, and as expected general compartments were full and Second sitting were occupied by only reserved people. Train got starter only at 1:40PM. A
...
Read more...
delayed start by 5min. Initial run was really pathetic, it was moving in speed, which can be sad as neither good, nor bad. As each station passes by delay was getting increased, further it was increased with overtake of PATNA-SBC Premum Special. The delayed finally reached upti 35min by the time the train left Katpadi. Sceen in second sittings were changing. Now it is becoming like General compartment. The TV was on, tamil comedy clips were shown, film Indian/Anniyan etc etc were played. Not fully. But from here and there. Few Clips. As the train left JTJ, the speed got increased. Then it started showing what real SF is. The program in TV changed from Tamil to Kannada and english some dance shows. It was still finding tough to maintain the time since only slack i found was in between Banglore CANT and SBC. Finally it reached SBC 10min late. There was drastic change in weather. From Hot chennai to Cool Bangalore.
Catering: At MAS, you will be getting Biriyani's. Further Tea, Soup, Coffee. Evening snacks include Vada, cutlet, bhaji, samoosa, Masala dosa, bread omelet.
Maintainance and cleaniness: I dont think i need to describe it. Train belongs to "SWR" so you can guess. SWR you are great.. SR people should go and learn from them.
Punctuality: Will give above average. Eventhough late, it had good run, and somewhat managed to keep up the TT when it reached Bangalore
Things to be changed: Eventhough tough call for TTE, unreserved passengers should be avoided in reserved coaches especially in secon sitting, where there is no scope of adjustment. All will be standing, which will be hampering the movement of catering staff and passengers who wish to go to bathrooms.

Better to have a train starting immediately after Brindavan b/w MAS and JTJ and the train can have RSA with JTJ-BWT passenger and return back to MAS in the night. End to End unreserved pax in ICE or Lalbagh is less...

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
