Superb coverage bro. One thing really surprised me that is the crossing at SVM.
SVM has just one platform and in your case the Vasco Kulem passenger occupied it so your train was halted on the track without platform. They should have stranded the passenger and Chandor its completely illogical to halt a long distance train on track without platform. Its unsafe too people would have to face unnecessary trouble here.

Well, this is news to me!! :D lol I was so engrossed in capturing the crossing that i failed to notice the other side of the station (which apparently doesn't have a pf according to what u say); And I guess its upto the SM to decide where we should be halted! If u had observed we had crossed the UBL-BAY pass in some station where we didn't have a halt and we were halted in the loopline and the pass was received in the mainline!

Yes bro its pretty unsafe for halting trains on non platform tracks. Yes SVM has just one platform and 18047 has scheduled halt there too.

We all know how much rush this train carries but SER are not able to add more coaches due to 4 slip coaches operated by SCR from KCG to VSG and SCR's proposal for dedicated train rejected by SWR citing Ghat constraints. Anyways but considering the fact that train has just coaches from HWH to GTL. Why not SER add around 4 slip coaches in this train from HWH to GTL this will definitely be helpful for bringing down the rush. At GTL these coaches can be removed and KCG Vasco slip coaches can be attached. Once SWR completes HPT VSG track doubling ie. after 4 to 5 years and finally allows KCG Vasco dedicated train these HWH GTL slip coaches can be added to HWH VSG main portion.

slip coaches can consist of 2 SL, one 3AC and one SLR coach which will definitely ease this trains load.
Before posting this suggestion on pgportal I would like to get views from you guys here.

Agree it takes longer route,but what is solution if SWR keep on reject proposal from Years?? and RB simply watch and enjoy enjoy,some thing is better than nothing
Amravati takes 2121kms and if MAO-Panvel - HWH takes 1940+486 which is 2436 kms....which is 305kms extra.
Agree it takes longer route,but what is solution if SWR keep on reject proposal from Years?? and RB simply watch and enjoy,some thing is better than nothing.
i guess there is some segment of people who are willing to travel for extra 2 or 4 hrs insted of taking break journeys or book in WL.

PNBE VSG was being shunted in the yard by a WDM3D most probably from ET shed with as usual two extra SL coaches after S11

A short trip report of my journey from Vasco to Sanvordem in 12779 Goa Super Express.
I had to go to Vasco Da Gama today for some work in Mormugao Municipality today. My work was over by 2.45 pm. Now the question rose in my mind should I go back to my home via the same 2 bus trip which I took in the morning for reaching VSG or should I wait till evening for the one train and one bus trip back to home in the evening Vasco Kulem passenger. But after watching that it was 2.45 pm and the municipality is just near to the Railway station I set my eyes in 12779 super which earlier I had spotted in

the VSG yard with a KJM WDP4. So I rushed to the station brought a UR ticket to SVM and boarded a UR coach third from the loco.
Now comes the main part. Train was parked on PF#1. Kulem Vasco passenger was resting on PF#2. PNBE VSG was being shunted in the yard by a WDM3D most probably from ET shed with as usual two extra SL coaches after S11. A BOXN rake loaded with some coils was awaiting for its turn to enter the Port. Just few minutes before our departure a coal loaded BOXN arrived at VSG from the Port led by UBL WDG4 twins. Regarding rush luckily I got a seat, not much rush in SL coaches may be due to offseason.
The EMD beast gave a thundering roar and we left VSG sharp at 3.10 pm. The EMD did not show its true power till Sankval from where it started speeding up, overtaking a weirdly coupled Twin WDG4 loaded BOXN rake both were 4500 HP WDG4s evident from their livery both coupled in LHF mode which was quite surprising besides two BCNA rakes were also there in the Zuari Industries rail siding at Sankval.
After Sankval train skipped Cansaulim at good speed not MPS though crossing a Twin WDG4 led BOXN rake bound to Vasco. Surprisingly we skipped Majorda Junction through the PF#1 instead of the main line. But after that the EMD thundered all the way to MAO outers at MPS skipping Suravali at MPS. After waiting for about 5 minutes at outers we entered MAO at 3.50 pm on PF#1, where we met the "Bengali Damsel in Distress" 18047 UP HWH VSG Amaravati express running late by around 1 hour 50 minutes hauled by SCR's GY WDG3A Twins on PF#2. This poor train was heavily delayed in Dharwad Londa stretch may be due to HPT VSG track doubling works. I wanted to notice its CC but when I had just stated and was nearing the AC coaches few coaches of KR parked on the track between our platforms blocked my view. Lots of people boarded the train at MAO both making the UR coaches overcrowded. Lots of reserved passengers too.
We departed MAO after around 7 to 8 minutes and skipped SJDA while the EMD was still trying to accelerate after few minutes it accelerated to MPS and skipped Chandor within no time while crossing a Twin WDG4 led BOXN to Vasco. After few minutes the EMD started to deaccelerate indicating that its next halt SVM my destination was nearing. Finally entered SVM at around 4.20 pm where I bid farewell and Happy journey to Goa Super and went to the SVM Railway station bus stop for a 14 kms bus ride back to home. Moderate rush at SVM.
Lol even the bus was in MPS mood reached my destination in just 15 minutes ie. 14 kms in 15 minutes which is great for local private buses in Goa.
This was the end of a wonderful one train and one bus ride to home.
Thank you.

A few notings after the trip.
1. Goa express link most probably changed from KJM Alco to KJM EMD, can be updated on our site after further confirmation.
2. Construction work of additional platforms going on at Madgaon Jn.
3. Once a SCR's GY Alco dominated section ie. VSG to QLM is taken over by SWR's KJM and UBL Alcos and EMDs. Now only

Amaravati express gets GY Alcos here even for banking passenger rakes they use UBL WDG4s spotted 2 months back on my trip on VSG YPR express to Londa Jn.
4. During Alco reign I never witnessed 12779 at MPS in VSG QLM stretch but today the EMD gave it to me.
