Madgaon - Dadar Jan Shatabdi Exp, the Fastest train on Konkan Railway passes thru Zuari Bridge at caution of 60 km/hr. The Zuari Bridge is a link between North Goa and South Goa. This bridge carries the Konkan Railway over the tidal part of the Zuari River, south of Karmali. The time estimated for the construction of the Rail Bridge was eight years initially but the engineers finished it in only three years. The Rail bridge is 1.4 kms long approx.

Roll On - Roll Off Services and Benefits
Konkan Railways’ novel experiment with `Roll-on Roll-off’ of trucks over BRN wagons has been a resounding success. In this arrangement trucks are loaded through a ramp provided at the dead-end of a loop on BRN wagons which have been suitably modified for through passage of trucks over them. Before loading over the BRNs, the trucks are weighed and passed under a height gauge (maximum height – 3.4 metres above road level) to ensure that they conform to the maximum moving dimensions for safe passage. The driver and cleaner of the truck travel along, sleeping in their truck cabin.

Benefits of RORO services : -
RORO services save precious fuel for the nation.
Speed of Ro-Ro train is fast enough as compared to movement by Road
Terminal time of loading/unloading is just 15 to 20 minutes in Ro-Ro.
Better turnaround of trucks.
No risk of accidents
No wear and tear of trucks
Less pollution as trucks are not plying on the roads.
Tariff is competitive to sustain the market forces.
No hassle of octroi, toll etc.
No detentions at terminals
No paper work
Roll On Roll Off service is presently available between the following points :
Kolad (145 kms. from Mumbai) and Verna (12 kms. from Madgaon)
Verna and Surathkal (20 kms. from Manglore)
Kolad and Suratkal

A Mesmerizing Journey along the Konkan Coast, what better way than Indian Railways to do it, Journey highlights from 12133 Mumbai-Mangalore SF traversing through Goa.
As a Part of a circular trip I had been on in June 2015 with my friends, I decided to close the trip with a journey through the majestic Konkan Railways. For this purpose we booked on the 12133 Mumbai CST Mangalore Jn. Superfast Express, fondly called 'Rocket' by one and all for its aggressive schedule and short Turn-around time at Mangalore. Its as less as 75mins during the non-monsoon schedule and 90mins during the monsoon schedule, putting it on par with TAT of Intercity Express trains. We boarded the Rocket on a Tuesday night, so
that we get to see the KR king TVC Rajdhani and India's Longest Running Duronto, the ERS NZM Duronto as crossings.
Our loco was a WDM3D from Kalyan (KYN) shed; 11390. Our train departed from CST a few minutes late, but the Rocket managed to cover up lost time overnight. This video in particular covers the entire Journey through Goa state. With the exception of Pernem, the first station after crossing the Maharashtra-Goa border; all stations have been covered in the North-South line which forms a part of the Konkan Railways Network. At Thivim, we crossed the northbound Netravati express led by offlink KYN WDG4. Post this it was a merry run all the way till Madgaon Jn. A few hundred metres before Majorda Jn.; the line from Vasco joined us. At Suravali, the food king Mumbai CST bound Mandovi Express rushed past us led by a KJM WDP4.
After a customary 10min halt at Madgaon, we departed and crossed the stationary rake of Madgaon Dadar Janshatabdi express led by GOC WDP4D at a pitline outside MAO. The rake of the Chandigarh bound Goa Sampark Kranti Express can be seen in the coaching depot. After being looped at Balli for a freight crossing, Canacona& Loliem were smoothly crossed. Post this we crossed the Goa-Karnataka border and moved into the state Karnataka.
This compilation thus covers the entire run of 12133 Mangalore express through the state of Goa. Please do watch and share your feedback. Cheers. YT Link: click here
