[Edit]: The entry to the falls through the Railway Tracks have been strictly banned by the railways and hence this tip would not be applicable going forward. Kindly take a note of it.
This tip is exclusively for Boarding the 12779 Goa Express from Dudhsagar Station in the evening and is based on my recent visit to the falls.
1. Tickets: Please take return tickets from wherever you start your journey as DDS doesn't have a ticket counter. Its better if you have prior reservations done. If you don't have tickets and get

into reserved bogies, the TTE's charge 50 Rs per passenger for going from DDS to Londa(I had noticed this)
2. Halt: The 12779 Goa Express halts at DDS for a minute. Hence try to make it quicker to the station, atleast 20 mins before the scheduled time. This period is enough for a group of 10 people to get in through one entrance.
3. Getting in: Many people would be waiting here to board this train as this is the last train towards Londa Jn which halts here and hence if the crowd near one compartment is more, try to board from the nearby compartments.
4. Reserved Accommodation: If you have a reserved accommodation, please note the coach position from IRI in advance. You may ask the Station Master about the position of your coach.
5. Security: Last year when we boarded from DDS, we didn't see any RPF officials at the station. This year though, some RPF personnel(6-8) were present at DDS station to ensure the safety of passengers boarding the Goa Express.
Final TIP: Please avoid visiting the falls on a weekend.
PICS: These pictures show the no of people boarding the Goa Express on a weekday(Tuesday) and hence you can predict what it would be like to board the train on a weekend. (Fortunately, everyone boarded the train safely with hussle and bussle but no one was left stranded)

Yes.
Amaravathi Express halts at DDS in both the directions, i.e HWH-VSG and VSG-HWH.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
