The Legendary Brindavan Express in its Full-length Glory

The 12640 Brindavan Superfast Express from Bangalore City SBC to Chennai Central MAS is seen near Bayyappanahalli at Sadanandanagar hauled by Royapuram electric locomotive shed’s WAP7 electric locomotive #30379, seen in its full 24-coach length glory. It was an unbelievably hot and sunny day, as can be seen from the photo, and to catch the legend I was almost fried to a crisp. It was on the same day I captured the Double Decker and the Howrah Duronto in their full lengths as well.

The Brindavan Express Snakes Towards KR Puram

The legendary 12640 Brindavan Express from Bangalore City to Chennai Central headed by a RPM WAP7 snakes its way slowly towards Krishnarajapuram Railway Station in Bangalore. The train is very long as it can be seen in this photo. It started running in 1964 is today just a shadow of its former glory. It does not even have an AC Car Car coach, slaughtered at the altar of the double decker. The weed-filled lake and the so-called KR Puram “hanging bridge” can also be seen.
