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.

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.

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

The Brindavan SF MAS>SBC>MAS for last few months is not much crowded than any other regular Trains in this corridor excluding Shatabdi &DD. Yet the Brindavan arrive at KJM towards Chennai after departed DD and Bangarpet- Passenger EMU, yet KJM Station looks bit crowded Passengers to catch Brindavan but within few minutes most of the pax get seats and some are standing but Not in the past. But now over-flowing passengers Hanging-on the-Doors SBC-Mas like Intercity Exp, Lalbagh, Sangamitra Exp.
Cause Brindavan the SR added 15 general Second-class coaches so passengers easily adjust before reaching Bangarpet-Station one way its good.

is not Brindavan Passengers get inside Reserved-coaches but all Intermediate-stations issue Un-reserved tickets in hundred/s. So once train stop for 2 mins. by the time passengers could not enter already full Un-reserved coaches so they in hurry to get in other reserved-coaches. So Reserved-passengers to adjust with standing-passengers without any quarrel to a fellow-citizens He/She travel in hurry.
-Hope SR & SWR kindly if arrange Un-reserved II Chair-car coaches to get more air & spacious. Even SBC-Arokonam Passenger train got chair-car.
-Hope our new Railway Minister Shri. Sadananda Gowda of Karnataka will arrange atleast a new Rake and Speed-up Brindavan Express like former Lalu Ji, Jaffar Sheriff.
-Former State Railway Minister Shri. Velu said factors such as the time taken for the slow down and Acceleration of the Brindavan train during the Arrival & Departure at a station, and the Grievances of Long-Distance Passengers about the increased running time taken by the Superfast trains owing to the increase in the number of halts have to be taken into consideration Before introducing more halts for such trains. Brindavan from JTJ to VN & Ambur made stoppage in very short distance aprox 15 km each stops for not a Superfast train.
-HOPE SR & SWR will do something to increase Brindavan Speed to adjust this short-distance- stops-Passengers can travel. And also Early Departure & Early Arrival before DD train so that middle-class, aged people and aam aadmi reach their homes to save lot of additional local transport expenses after reaching Chennai-Central at 9.15 pm and also when further late.
-Finally, when Brindavan constant speeding & crossing Pattabiram Station a Passenger during his serious talks with family members saying Brindavan Express is also called as "Jayalalithaa Express" which made us surprise and immense joy for some time !
Hope be optimistic one day in reality our CM Amma may name this Brindavan so that it will help middle-class and poor will travel on-time and much earlier timings than late and enjoy a clean-rake if IR Officials great help. thnx.
