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.

Crossing the longest running Rajdhani of Indian Railways at Madgaon Jn. | When fate says, we spot the Rajdhani; we SPOT the Rajdhani | Thanks to delayed runs of both the Trivandrum Rajdhani and our Amaravati Express, we were held up in MAO for the Rajdhani to arrive led majestically by its standard link - the toaster WDP3A from GOC

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.

PS: Loco link KJM WDP4 #20057 as per my das he whenever he goes near VSG Railway station he has spotted Goa Super with EMD so members please confirm the link and update
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.
PS: Loco link KJM WDP4 #20057 as per my das he whenever he goes near VSG Railway station he has spotted Goa Super with EMD so members please confirm the link and update.

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.

Almost every train from Vasco running via Braganza Ghats deaugmented reduced by one coach
Almost every train from Vasco running via Braganza Ghats reduced by one coach.
Did SWR fix maximum coach limit to just 20 coaches in Braganza Ghats now ?
1. Goa express one SL coach removed and added to UBL NZM slip, so now only 17 coaches for VSG to NZM and 3 to VSG SBC slip so 20 coaches from VSG to LD.
2.

One UR coach removed from VSG YPR and RSA partners except VSG PNBE which doesn't travel via this route, so now they have just 20 coaches instead of 21 before.
Only exception is Amaravati express which including the KCG VSG slip runs with 22 coaches.

After the ban on mining the Port was affected very badly but thanks to the new directions by the management in diversifying the Port from single commodity one ie. Iron Ore to multi commodity one, and the efforts put up by the workforce.
Also a major contributor

to their success is South Western Railways Hubli division who operate these long 58 Wagon long BOXN rakes in tough conditions of Braganza Ghats.
A few words about MPT. MPT is first of all one of the four biggest employers in the city of Vasco Da Gama, the other three being the Indian Navy, Indian Railways, The Goa Shipyard Ltd. No matter how much controversy is created by the politicians in Goa the MPT is responsible for changing the lives of many Goans from worst to best. Heard from my parents and grandparents stories of people who had difficulties affording a meal two times in a day before getting a job at MPT and now the same people have their own good houses, cars, etc. all thanks to MPT.
Last thing I want to speak is on Hospet to Vasco track doubling work which is in progress between Hospet to Londa. Some politicians have opposed it in Goa citing its as MPT scam but considering the growth MPT has achieved now I really feel that a double track till Vasco Da Gama would give them a big boost in traffic which would benefit the economy of Goa along with the residents of Vasco and the Hubli division of South Western Railways too also this would definitely boost tourism also as new trains would be introduced too due to the doubled section.
So once again I congratulate Mormugao Port Trust and wish them good luck in future and hoping for the completion of the Hospet Vasco track doubling at the earliest without any problems.
Thank You.

Agree, this is the reason SWR pushing doubling as fast as it can, especially in ghats. Hope this doubling will complete soon and 25-75 % of passenger and freight traffic will speed up in ghats.

Grievance posted by one of my friend who is from Vasco Da Gama who is not a railfan but having great passion for his hometown:
Grievance Description : Sir, It has been observed that one SL coach of train no. 12779/12780 Goa express, marked as S3 has been removed and added to the slip portion of Hubli Nizamuddin Hubli Link express without providing an additional SL coach to the Goa portion. Also AC First Class service is being available in the Slip portion but not in the main portion inspite of the main portion connecting Goa a major tourist destination.

Well Its Not Good But IR Compensated for 1AC Coach by Running 22413/14 Goa Rajdhani and even 1AC Service is Present in 12449/50 Goa Samprak Kranti Express, Both Dedicated to State of Goa.
Whereas Sleeper is Concerned, IR Can Add Another Sleeper to 12449/50 Goa Sampark Kranti Express, Making it 24 Coacher train and Fulfilling the Demands of People.

Sir but neither Goa SK nor Goa Rajdhani runs to VSG nor SVM both important stations for Goa too. Even Hubli is connected to Delhi via First AC service through KSK.

Should this train be restored back as SF once the track doubling work gets completed between Hospet to Londa and at the same time the Guntur to Guntakal stretch is electrified ?

Not much bro earlier it was SF used to depart VSG at 7.50 am and arrive VSG in return direction at around 14.15, so can depart VSG at 8.10 am arrive HWH at same time as of now similarly can arrive VSG in return direction at 13.55 overtaking the afternoon Kulem Vasco passenger only speed up would be in Guntur to Vasco stretch as Howrah to Guntur no speed up possible as of now.

Train Tag: Goa Express/12779 added by SL COACH STOLEN FROM GOA EXPRESS UBL ACCUSED/530177
So now South Western Robbers rob VSG of one SL coach of its pride Goa express and add it to its slip. About an year back they added HA1 to slip portion which was most required for Goa express as its only one 2AC was running well as good besides Goa being a tourist destination its trains do deserve such 1AC services but greedy Hubli division added to the slip portion and now they steal a SL coach too as if Goa express is running as a white elephant.
This is really injustice to VSG. Neither they augmented Goa express effectively nor could they start new trains from Vasco.

If UBL division wanted to add a SL coach to UBL NZM portion they should have added it directly without stealing one from the already full running VSG NZM Goa express. Totally injustice to Goa.
