Is the news reliable ? If yes then good as every week twice or thrice 12779 is delayed by making 12621 unnecessarily overtake it. 12780 is given a big slack in Pune to Miraj section but its delayed at LD due to the slip operations and then down the Ghats.

Bhai the situation of VSG is only getting worse. Sure Goa is getting many new trains but how many for Vasco?
Also except PNBE VSG all Vasco trains run via Braganza Ghats where the maximum coach capacity is reduced to 20. Take for example Amaravati express running full but only 16 coaches those are overcrowded but they can't add more coaches due to slip and 20 coach limit in Ghats. VSG platforms can accommodate 24 coach trains but not even one 24 coach train here.
VSG is only connected to New
Delhi by Goa express which takes a very long route 250 kms extra then the shortest one.
Goa Mumbai is a busy route and many commuters are from Vasco area but no single train available for Vasco.
It's the largest city and industrial capital of Goa but its thousand miles behind Madgaon when it comes to Rail connectivity.
Madgaon should have been developed as a major Junction and Vasco as a major Terminal but sadly both roles played by Madgaon and VSG is just a secondary terminal.
A small state like Goa should have been entirely covered by a single zone.

Travelling in18048 AmaravatI express ,we can see hell on earth.all sleeper coaches r just like generalcompartments.RPF&TTE r spectators.simply they are passing responsibility.no administration.ladies& seniorcitizèn faced ĺot of difficulties. They are not able to attend to their natural calls.passengers want safe&comfortable journey.in general trains moving towards Howra is like this.this is public opinion.Govt is not capable to control it.

Re# 2274329-1            Tags   Past Edits
I tell you what happened earlier this train had 18 coaches plus 4 slip coaches so total 22 from Guntakal to Vasco then due to some reasons coach capacity on the Ghat section it travels reduced to 20 so SER removed one UR coach so just 17 coaches from HWH out of that one SLR is detached at GTL so again coaches reduced to 16 in that there are only 2 UR coaches and one SLR, so after adding 4 slip coaches maximum capacity remains to 20.
Fact is not even SER cares much about this train otherwise this would have been rid of the slip long time ago. So you have just one 4 times a week 16 coacher connecting
the East India to Goa and no one cares about that connectivity so what can you expect ?
People who need to travel will travel by its the fault of Railways that this train is in horrible condition.
I had faced the same problem too that too in a short journey from VSG to LD.

This problem is not just with amaravati exp but also all daily express trains to howrah and guwahati from South. Even YPR HWH has 2 general and 2 slr and general travellers occupy every sl coach near to washroom. Even in HWH MAs mail and Guwahati Blore exp we find this problem due to less number of general coaches especially during summer and peak holiday seasons.

Re# 2274329-3            Tags   Past Edits
But most other trains are 24 coach ones and there are other faster options like Duronto and AC SFs. But here the case is different only one 16 coacher. If Amaravati express was a 24 coach daily train then situation would have been much better.
Ideal CC for Amaravati express as per my opinion is:
One 2AC, Four 3AC, Twelve SL, Four UR, Two SLR and one PC running 7 days a week.
that was the case Amaravati express would have been a much better train. But sadly it won't happen as there are hundreds of obstructions.

The trains 17021/17022 & 17419/17420 could be speeded up & made as TRI-WEEKLY with the below timings suggested by me in the attachment. Hope the railways will consider it & evaluate the feasibility of said suggestions.

SWR recently reduced CC of all trains in Braganza Ghats to 20 . So I don't think they will allow 24 coach trains here.

Re# 2199840-2            Tags   Past Edits
OK. The limit might be 20 CC but 18047/18048 AMARAVATHI EXP runs with 22 coaches ( 18 + 4 coaches of KCG VSG SLIP). The trains 17021/17022 & 17419/17420 could be run 12 & 10 coaches making it 22 coaches. Firstly the train is to be speeded up in the both up & down services & made a tri - weekly. Then it will become popular in the long run say 5-6 months & will run with good occupancy ratio.

Re# 2199840-4            Tags   Past Edits
Amaravati express comes with 17 coaches from HWH one UR coach is reduced by SER that's weird decision. But the main point is one SLR is detached at GTL so 17-1=16 coaches then 4 KCG Slip coaches added so maximum is 20 coaches.
Speed I agree with you it's definitely required. Both trains are too slow. Frequency increase is impossible unless RM or some political influences as SWR runs freights in empty slots of weeklies.

Want to see this train running with a full 18 to 21 coach rake atleast twice a week. But sadly it won't happen soon.

52 kph average as per our site. Instead of introducing such eye candies RM should introduce a regular LHB SF from VSG to Mumbai. Bit sadly our RM can't look anywhere in Goa besides KR, even TPTY/HYB train touches Vasco only because it uses SWR route otherwise MAO was guaranteed.
Maybe Railways should destroy Vasco station completely and start all trains from Madgaon and convert VSG into a big freight yard. Both KR and SWR will be happy. People of Vasco will be at loss but anyways who cares ?
