This train even in non monsoon has average speed below 55kph inspite of being a SF train. Gets overtaken by even M/E trains, has unnecessary overtake by Matsyagandha SF in KR. Either Railways increase its average to 60kph which should be possible considering the route it travels by reducing the unnecessary slack or degrade it to M/E category so passengers are not cheated.

Posted a grievance for Goa Rajdhani from NDLS to VSG got the following reply:
At present, running of a new Rajdhani Express between Vasco Da Gama and New Delhi is not feasible due to operational and resource constraints. However, introduction of new train services including Rajdhani Express is an on-going process over Indian Railways subjet to availability of resources, operational feasibility etc. Moreover, 2 train services serving Madgaon viz. 22413/22414 Nizamuddin-MAO Premium AC Express and 22653/22654/22655/22656 TVC-NZM (via MAO) Express bi-weekly have been announced in Railway Budget 2014-15.

Standing on VSG PF3
CC as follows
SLR UR S9 TO S1 B3/BE1 B2 B1 A1 UR UR SLR
Suprisingly B3 marked as both B3 & BE1 inspite of the augmentation being a permanent one, maybe due to B3 being present in the slip too.
Slip coaches attached behind the rake.

Actually SER should have marked marked it as just B3 and slip should have been marked as BE1.
Unnecessary confusion created three different coach numbers for one coach ie. B3, BE1 & B4 too.

Nope VSG HWH is the main train slip accompanies it for not even 25% journey. So its better main portion is given due importance. Having 3 different coach numbers for one coach and that too in the main portion is not reasonable. They could have marked the slip 3A as B4 instead. Amaravati 3A needs to be denoted as B3 as things in order looks better.

SR has supplied one full rake to KR. SER and NER also have supplied one rake each. Probably rake transfers.

All Trains including Amaravati stop at all stations(Caranzol,Dudhsagar and Sonalium) while descending the ghats for brake test, Dudhsagar falls is about 700-900 mts from DDS station(Or just a tunnel away if you look at it). However as other members suggested, elderly people might find it difficult to get down the train and its not worth the risk IMO.
.
While going uphill trains dont need to stop at either of the three stations, atleast VSG-YPR Exp didnt. But as Mr.Vivek says and heard often, it does seem like Goa Exp and Amaravathi UP stop there.

TT now updated on indianrail.gov.in, No change in overall arrival and departure at Vasco and Howrah. Looking forward for a railfan to capture it entering VSKP.
Hope the train maintains its TT and is allowed to overtake Prashanti at VSKP in HWH VSG run.

Hi Friends ! I always wonder one thing when it comes to this train. what would have propogated the Ministry in 2007 to extend the 17226/7 VSG BZA Amaravati express to as far as upto HOWRAH. coz i always heard of demands of extending 17225/7 from BZA to NS/CCT/VSKP but never myself imagined that this train from BZA would be extended upto Howrah crossing 3 state boundaries.. It just gave an WWooWW experience hearing the news at that time. Was there any demand from public at goa/hubli/enroute at that time of a train to Howrah. What was the main reaosn behind this step ?

Yeah its extension to Howrah was a surprise one but proved to be very successful. There were demands for a extending Vasco BZA Amaravati express to VSKP but HWH was not much asked I think. But one thing Railways overlooked was the slip they should have realised that it was never wise to run a slip with this train covering many important destinations enroute and should have introduced a new dedicated train to HYB from Vasco.

The reason why UBL and VSG connected is before SWR UBL div is in SCR.
Now SWR has prob of running new trains Londa-VSG sections so insted of new train bza-vsg extended to hwh
