Goa express pre-dates KR by many years, and snatching it away from CR and making it run via KR will deprive many people along that route who rely on that train. besides there is SK which runs via KR which satisfies the requisite demand of yours

And to tell you that KR does not serve entire Goa for majority of South Goans Goa express is the only train to Pune and also runs daily.
Any fool will also tell Goa express is the best train to Pune for South Goa as a whole minus Madgaon.

Whether you agrree or not is not a question. the Goa Express takes the wrong route. Just becuase it started way before the KR, does not mean the route should not change. The Netravati, 12432/31 Rajdhani used to follow another route, till the introduction of the KR and today Malyalees benefit. The GOa Express is just not Goa Express as it serves more of the other states than Goa. Any fool will agree with this,

And to you Goa express also serves a purpose of Goa Miraj connectivity and also Goa to Pune and Shirdi connection and if Goa express is routed via Pune what happens of SVM and QLM are they not a part of Goa ?
And what happens if KR absorbs it for themselves and terminates it at Madgaon or Karmali instead of Vasco ?
And what if they don't give it the same priority it gets in SWR ?

By not going through KR it serves more of Goa than it would with KR, as there are plenty of trains via KR anyways. In case of netravati or TVC rajdhani diverting via KR had no affect on how much stations it served in Kerala, and since there was a huge time benefit, it made sense to do so via KR. Even then, there are trains in kerala that go via PUNE rather than KR to serve intermediate passengers in other state.

Why doesn't this train halt at Thivim? It would have been a better idea to terminate the train at Kudal itself. THis train serves Maharashtra not Goa.

This train hardly caters to Goa. It only terminates in Goa. I wonder, who is going to board this train in Sawantwade and Ratnagiri. There are hardly any takers for the Rajdhani and Garib Rath trains. As has been the case with other trains, probably this is WRs' gift to the people of these places so that they can board the train with a general ticket as is seen in other trains

WHy is it the Mumbai-Karmali train not halting at Thivim? This is nothing but radicalism where, the KR only wishes to harass the people of Goa. What they are trying to show is Kudal, Kankavli and Chiplun earn maximum revenue, when the truth is illegal and ticketless travellers get in at these places.

If Railways really cared about Goa there would have been atleast a single daily train from Vasco to Mumbai now that Madgaon is getting congested the Goddamn idiots think that Karmali can be a good terminal but in reality its just a small village whereas Vasco the largest city of Goa but most neglected by Railways. These trains terminating are Karmali or even Madgaon are injustice to Goa.

It's definitely right that KR should provide stopage at thivim but it's baseless to say travellers from kankavli, kudal and chiplun are ticketless...what do u mean by saying this? It is always illegal to travel without ticket. D crime is punishable. But it is unacceptable that travellers from konkan are ticketless and from only d revenue getting from thivim KR/CR is operating train services

This is a premium train where fares can increase with every seat booked. For such high fares, the run time is really slow. THe run time should have been on par with the Rajdhani. You get your facts right before commenting.

What is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. It is as simple as that. This is premium train. In real terms, a SL ticket for 14 Dec, 2014 from Madgaon to Panvel on this premium costs more than a 3AC ticket in the Matsyagandha. Worst, the Matsyagandha actually overtakes this premium and arrives at Panvel way ahead. In other words, this train is nothing but fooling the public, who are ready to pay extra. This should be taken to the consumer forum. Railways is not serving the people, instead they are hell bend to exploit the general public

While Bandra, Andheri and Borivli are also in contention, sources claim Dadar has the advantage of being the common point for WR and CR and can be easily accessible by officials from both the railways
Living up to his promise of overhauling the city’s fatigued rail network, Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu is looking forward to set up his office in the city to watch over the proceedings.
Highly placed sources in the ministry claimed that Dadar, Bandra, Andheri and Borivli are the locations chosen for setting up the office. The office

will either be close to the station or on the station premises.
“We are scrutinising these locations. The minister is yet to finalise one,” said a senior railway official. Sources claimed that while every railway minister has an office in the hometown he or she hails from, it would be the first-ever for a Union railway minister to have an office in Maharashtra.
The setup will be used to meet railway officials, party functionaries, and hold public meetings. They further claimed that the office is likely to be set up on a railway plot between Dadar and Matunga stations on the Central line, as Dadar is a common point for the Western and Central Railways and easily accessible for officials from both the railways.
During his previous visit to the city, Prabhu met general managers of both the railways at his residence in Khar. Even the MPs thronged his residence to express their displeasure over the poor maintenance practices adopted by the railways, leading to myriad technical failures and disruption of train services. It was during this visit that the idea to have a separate office for Prabhu was first proposed.
Why Dadar?
The reason to select Dadar to set up an office for the railway minister is that Dadar is a common point for the Western and Central Railways and is easily accessible for officials from both the railways.

Mumbai has always been neglected by past RMs. Let's hope the current RM does something for Mumbai. I really do not know what the solution is for Mumbai, considering the population explosion on local and long distance trains. Atleast, he should try and convert all local coaches to a minimum 12 cars.

Nov 13 2014 (06:29)   Holiday hurdle: Speed restrictions may delay trains on Mumbai-Goa route

This holiday season, the Mumbai-Goa train timetable might face serious delays, as a speed restriction of 75kmph has been imposed at several stretches along the 760-km Konkan Railway (KR) route.
The restrictions were put in place nearly three weeks ago following the derailment of two goods trains. After the mishaps, commissioner of railway safety (central circle), Chetan Bakshi found flaws in the track welding. The rail line also failed the Ultrasonic Flaw Detection tests. He then asked the KR to conduct the tests again and fix the weak welds, so that trains could be run safely.

said due to the restriction, KR's prime train, the Konkan Kanya Express, has been delayed by an average of one hour in the last few weeks. The problem might be compounded when more holiday-special trains run along the corridor. The Mumbai-Goa journey, which generally takes 11 hours 40 minutes, has already been delayed by average of an hour right now.
Meanwhile, KR officials said they were working overtime to get the restrictions removed at the earliest.
"The derailment of two goods trains and another near-miss earlier this week, when Konkan Kanya Express train had a narrow escape, led authorities to impose the restrictions. If the KR passes the Ultrasonic Flaw Detection tests and fixes all the track weld problems, they will be removed," said Bakshi. He added the KR reports were still awaited.
Meanwhile, the KR spokesperson said the speed restrictions will not affect the holiday season. "We are working overtime to fix the problem. It will not affect the holiday season. We should be able to submit the report to the safety commissioner by the third week of November. Moreover, many of the sections on which the restrictions have been imposed lie beyond Goa, and so will not affect the Mumbai-Goa route," she said.

The existing trains should be augmented. The major trains, Mangala, Netravati and Matsyagandha should be augmented to 24 coaches at least till May-2015. Similarly, the 12134/33 should be augmented at at least 21-22 coaches and the Jan Shatabdi to 15 coaches. One thing is for sure, the KR does not know how to run holiday specials. Here, the talk is about the Konkan Kanya getting delayed by 1 hour. The 00111 LTT-MAO gets delayed by 5-6 hours and the KR website shows it as running as per schedule. Therefore, the KR should concentrate more on increasing the capacity of the regular trains rather than fooling people in the name of holiday specials with unachievable train timings

I fail to understand, what @delay beyond Madgaon@ means. In real terms, all trains have been delayed. Ex. the 12134 is supposed to overtake both the 10112 nd 10004. Nothingof that sort has taken lace in the last 7 days. In fact, the 12134 trails the 12620 till Mumbai
