Lately been pondering on this:

There are so manyctrains connecting Mumbai n Goa but still why Bus Operators in this stretch make great incomes...

There are plenty of AC buses
running on this route n all run full almost daily. So demand exists for AC classes too at par with Non AC ones... So based on certain findings I have compiled up as under as to how to totally check mate Bus lobby Mumbai to Goa :

1. 12051/52 JNS to be retained as it is. One CC to be replaced by 2 Second Seating Coaches

2. Tejas shd be extended till MAO n will run Triweekly as

CST : 07:10
MAO : 16:10

MAO : 08:00
CST: 17:00

3. 10103 Mandovi will be speeded up to depart CST at 10:00 hrs n arrive MAO @ 21:45 hrs

10104 Mandovi will run as per existing schedule

4. Netra/ASR KCVL slot+/Matsya/GR slot to be retained

5. LTT VSG Uday DD Triweekly express shd be introduced slot sharing with 22629/30 DR TEN Express (11085/86 cancelled permanently)


6. Will be followed by weeklies /Rocket/KK n RR

Soliciting your Comments on this.

Thanks in Advance

Re# 2249914-3            Tags   Past Edits
1. 12133/34 Rocket ka CC wont be increased till all PFs at Mumbai CST can handle 24 coach trains

2. Yes. JNS CC can be increased but Terminal constraints at Dadar might create a hurdle. However that can be sorted out.

AC Exp can be started but unfortunately AC Exp have been given slot at 01:00 am onwards ex LTT n 12:30 noon ex Karmali. 22115/16 LTT KRMI Exp shd be extendes till Vasco to see the response. IMHO 22115/16 shd be given dedicated rake comprisingbof just 10 LHB 3A cars, extended upto Vasco n run Triweekly ..slot sharing with my proposed UDAY Exp

So we have
Triweekly UDAY to Vasco
Triweekly AC Exp to Vasco or Karwar as desired
(Both extended to Vasco/Karwar to avoid terminal constraints at Madgaon)
22629/30 DR TEN Weekly SF

Agreed. Mumbai mangalore Mumbai SF should be converted to 24 coach rake. But then we need to wait till cst gets more 24 coach enable platforms since the time of departure of Mumbai mangalore SF exp is a congested time at cst with less platform availability. There are plans to convert platform 10,11,12 & 13 into 24 coach enable platforms. And may be pitlines scarcity for 24 coach trains will also be a problem. Experts pls comment.

Just 4 PFs at Mumbai can handle 24 coach trains and this is creating a serious problem for many trains...

One reason is VSG the largest city of Goa and Panjim the capital of Goa are not connected to Mumbai by Rail.
Panjim it's ok since it dosent have rail connection at all but VSG it's possible to give but politics between KR and SWR.

Need one suggestion. Was trying to book Konkan railway retiring room at MAO for tomorrow. But now system is showing, booking date choosing option from 17th April is available. Is it a system rule to dim two-three day's advance date or all rooms got booked suddenly? I found all AC, Non-AC rooms and dormitory were available till day before yesterday.

On KR, Retiring Room can be booked upto 2 days prior to the date of stay. Can't be booked after that. Approach information counter at MAO and book it from there.

जरूरत पड़ी तो ट्रेन चलेगी रेलवे बोर्ड ने मांगी रिपोर्ट
ट्रेनों की कनेक्टिविटी को बेहतर बनाने के लिए रेलवे प्लानिंग कर रहा है। इसके लिए अब ऑन डिमांड ट्रेन चलाई जाएंगी। रेलवे बोर्ड ने सभी जोनल रेलवे को पत्र जारी कर नई ट्रेन के प्रस्ताव मांगे हैं।
जोनल व डिवीजन रेलवे के अधिकारियों को सांसद, जोनल रेलवे यूजर कंसल्टेटिव कमेटी, डिवीजन रेल यूजर कंसल्टेटिव कमेटी के प्रतिनिधियों के साथ बैठक कर प्रस्ताव तैयार करने के लिए कहा है। इसको लेकर जोनल व डिवीजन स्तर पर मंथन शुरू हो गया है। मीटिंग में
मिलने वाले प्रस्तावों का कॉमर्शियल सर्वे होगा। रेलवे बोर्ड ने 10 अप्रैल तक नई ट्रेन के प्रस्ताव की रिपोर्ट बोर्ड में भेजने के निर्देश दिए हैं। देशभर में नई रेल लाइनों का जाल बिछाया जा रहा है लेकिन कई जगह लाइन होने के बावजूद रेल कनेक्टिविटी नहीं है। जिसके कारण यात्री अभी भी बेहतर कनेक्टिविटी के लिए परेशान हैं। जनता की मांग के अनुसार सर्वे होगा। कॉमर्शियल तौर पर जिन स्थानों पर यात्रियों की संख्या अधिक होगी वहां पर नई ट्रेन शुरू कर दी जाएगी। एक अक्टूबर को जारी होने वाले टाइम टेबल में नई ट्रेनों की घोषणा हाेगी।
