We thank SR & SWR Officials if possible for keeping Punctuality @ all times for Brindavan SF#12640/12639. On 21st Arrived MAS @9pm, and 22nd @8.55pm is 15-20 mins BEFORE is big relief for its passengers, but sometimes 15-30 mins arrival late due to 2-3 short-distance-stations-added than old-timings. we leave our home 1pm onwards for Brindavan late Dep:3.10 pm with WAP4 Loco takes time.
Instead REQUEST to SPEED-UP Brindavan with WAP7 Loco for this huge 24-Coaches with full Passenger load revenue still there with CC or without CC even after new DD AC started run full. Twice we traveled by DD is good, but always not possible due to Rs.480/-ticket fare. so we prefer Brindavan ticket plus pantry car coffee, dossa,etc & other

One of the best intercities in SR/SWR. Known for its speed and punctuality. At times it is trolled by controllers. It is better not to travel by 2S as there is no difference between unreserved and reserved coaches. Vendors and other people occupy all the available space and are not ready to deboard from reserved coaches even after the TTE warning them. This train can be preferred if there is no other train available.

Of course not all. But there are exceptions. I have seen twice or thrice. :) But if you ask those people to get up,they make a big fuss and argue thereby creating a big scene.

Try to avoid travelling in this train with unreserved general 2nd class seating tickets especially during Sundays and holidays.The coaches are overcrowded and once it reaches KSR SBC waiting passengers on either side of the platform will rush into the train without letting the passengers to alight.Its total chaos and nobody is present to control the rush.Not at all safe for elderly people and children as the passengers rushing in for seats don't bother who is in line to alight.

Brindavan SF Express 12640 Arv: 20:35 on monday 17/8 which is 30 mins early @ Chennai Central is gr8!
Same time all Intermediate-Stations from Cant/KJM/Bangarpet/Kuppam/ Vaniyambadi and Ambur stations if run on-time as per time-table which will be much helpful to all Passengers to reach our destinations within 10-15 mins. late adjustable.
-Also, Brindavan 12639 after crossing Jolarpettai and from Kuppam. Bangarpet, KJM getting Late due to 24-coaches (instead 20-21 coaches like LALBAGH Exp.) and unofficial stop at Baiyappanahalli until Karnataka-Express from Delhi to SBC Late running and crossing at BYPL so Brindavan

deliberately stopping so 2 trains get Late to reach SBC. But same rake Brindavan after 1-hour stop and Return SBC-MAS/12640 Dep: 15:00 hrs. So preference to give Brindavan @KJM Dep; 13:00, Cant. 13:15 & SBC Arv 13:30 instead drag 1 hour and arv.14:00 hrs.
So suggesting SR & SWR officials to Speed-up BRINDAVAN like BEFORE SBC-MAS RUNNING TIME 5.30 Mins. and MAS-SBC Running-time 5.40 Mins.
-So Accha din ayya our Prime Minister MODI Ji instructions and Railway Minister Shri. Suresh Prabhu few months-back those Trains> Running-Late must Run on Punctuality all SUPERFAST TRAINS of all Railway-Division.
-So our P.M good intention why not Middle Class and Aam Admi of Brindavan Superfast also reach their destination please Speed-up Brindavan old 60-62 KMPH and Punctuality and kindly Avoid few/further stops for this long-distance Passengers reach Chennai-Central Arrived 5.30 Hrs. running time like run on 17/8/2015 Monday. thnx.
