Need immediate justice for this train 😔😔😔Pathetic maintenance of deputy king of SWR with its RSA 12657/58 Bangalore Mail. It was maintained properly in ICF era but after getting LHB the maintenance was become below average. SWR gave only spare, 2 nd class quality LHB stock (provided old rakes of earlier LHB fied trains) and SWR not able to provide uniform rake (the 7th pic was of SCR rake but probably hidden by someone's head) One of AC coaches having Graffiti (see 4th pic)which will even add more shame on legacy and dignity on both trains. Why nowadays SWR doing like SER(as when Coromandel express given LHB, many old spare coaches were used rather than new stock). Why SR not doing anything for this rake of Bangalore mail (secondary maintenance) and not doing that properly but instead parking at Chennai Beach station for the sake of occupancy of BBQ yard?...
Both SWR, SR and NR did injustice for these both legendary trains . Look at maintenance of Tamilnadu/Grand Trunk/Telangana express trains. They are maintained like Rajdhani and given higher priority. Never thought of degradation of train quality when upgradation of any train. RAILWAYS PLEASE SEPARATE RSA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND RETAIN LEGACY OF SOUTH BOUND TRAIN 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Re# 5439319-13              
I've been saying this for a while now. SWR used to have AMAZING cleanliness standards, almost rivalling SCR but way better than SR. Now, SR/MAS divn also has better maintenance than SWR. How has it suddenly changed?

The king Namma Rajdhani has poor maintenance
The legend KK has extremely old coaches and its RSA partner
oldest legendary train SBC - MAS mail faces the same fate.

These are trains that we see regularly, but the same can be observed as a pattern across all trains in SWR. Why have the standards dipped so suddenly? What has changed? Why are trains being slowed down? Why are they becoming dirty?

Something needs to change. Quickly. To bring back SWR's original position as one of the cleanest zones of IR, along with SCR.

Re# 5439319-14              
Question 1: Why there is an need of using this train as Shirdi Saibaba package (see pics 1&2) whereas MYS SNSI and MAS SNSI via KJM is there to cater Bengaluru passengers to Shirdi/Manmad? What is the use of these both weeklies? It will put even more additional strain for end to end passengers. To add even fuel to fire, SWR was running with revised CC from today onwards.( See 3rd pic) All persons can't afford Rajdhani and all the three KSK's took 6 hours more than KK. Hence KK was an ideal train. But the owner SWR itself destroyed this train by reducing 11 SL to 7 SL in the name of standardisation. Except Chandigarh KSK, both KSK were reduced to 6-7 SL post LHB. It will affect on common man on affordable travel. An train to Delhi with more SL coaches via old KSK route very much needed in...
future for cater Bengaluru passengers. Also Bengaluru's growth was fastest too with International standards. There are about 31 trains from Mumbai to New Delhi, 13 trains from Kolkata to New Delhi , 11 trains from Hyderabad to New Delhi, 10 trains from Chennai to New Delhi but shockingly Bengaluru has only 7 trains to New Delhi. Very very Bad Karma done by SWR.

If you want the old KSK route, I hereby present 12647 Kongu SF Express! KJM to NZM, same route from YNK onwards

But seriously though, I agree with everything you said. Some other suggestions I would like to give:

SWR should speedup the Toofan duronto (12213) and make it a daily train.
2. Should cancel the RSA between KK and Mail. In winter, Mail often gets delayed because of KK which gets 7-8 hours late due to fog in NR.
3. Should work hard to get back to the cleanliness standards it used to have (even just one year ago, it was great) especially for Shatabdi, Rajdhani and Duronto.
4. Must immediately review all timetables and remove excessive slack. Even the most premium SWR trains run with heavy slack and can easily be sped up by 2+ hours.

Re# 5439319-16              
Better Kongu express can be run daily. Duronto can be run with sleeper coaches.

Re# 5439319-17               Past Edits

Just checked Kongu's timetable, it also really needs a speedup. SR/SA divn should speed up Kongu and give a good quota to KJM.

SWR can add sleeper coaches to Duronto if required,
but what's most important is that it gets a speedup. Also both terminals should be changed. It should run from SMVB to NZM.

"Toofan" Duronto is slower than AP Express, barely faster than Kerala. Gets overtaken by Darshan Express. Honestly not worthy of being called "Toofan" or "Duronto" unless drastic measures are taken.

In the southbound direction, SBC Raj is a faster option than Duronto. It never used to be like this :(
