On the return, we took Amaravati to GTL.. It was very horryfying as people occupy the KCG SL coach and they never get off until GTL. I filed a twitter complaint to DRMUBL, DRMGTL, Minsitery of railways.. they sent RPF to attend to my request in GTl which was of no use. As in GTL my coach gets detached and kept aside for 4 hours.. So technically the issue wasn;t resolved until it was of no use to resolve.

I had a horrible experience in December when I travelled from Vasco to Londa in the SL coach. Maintainaince was good, coach and toilets were clean but overcrowded train. More than 90 people in my coach on top of that SWR imposed 20 coach limit in Braganza Ghats so two unreserved coaches are detached of HWH portion at GTL to accommodate the 4 slip coaches.

Admin please update. CC from VSG as follows

Total only 16 coaches from Vasco to Howarh.
Don't know if some coaches are attached and detached at GTL as my journey was only from VSG to LD.

noticed the train board and saw Guntakal to Howrah and then left as I was in a hurry. Since I was at Guntakal and the board read Guntakal, I didn't give any second thought and left :)

Later on, your question flashed to my mind. I tried to recollect things.... some 2 bogies which were GEN, some parcel vans like those in KSK. Some 5-6 coaches were being shunted.

All this is like a blur. Wish I had realised it then. Hope some GTL members shed light on this.

Notice in pic: the train board is similar to SER boards - Red board white lettering.

Re# 2097710-92            Tags   Past Edits
Amaravati express used to run as a 18 coacher from Howrah and then 4 slip coaches used to get added at GTL and then it moved to VSG as a 22 coach train but recently all trains in Braganza Ghats reduced to 20 coachers so I guess these two are the coaches of Amaravati which get detached at GTL so rake length decrease to 16 coaches and after slip addition its still 20. I guess this is going to continue for a long time as SWR and RB care less about this section of Goa.
If traveling in Amaravati was bad now its worst between Vasco to GTL as just 3 unreserved coaches.
After

GTL situation may improve due to readdition of these two coaches.
I feel SER should send it as a 24 coach train from HWH with 8 coaches dettaching at GTL.

Even earlier Parcel Vans were added at GTL I think as Train used to come from HWH with HCPVs but no Parcel Vans used to come down to Vasco as restriction was 22 coaches. But now brought down to 20 coaches so along with Parcel Van even two GS coaches are detached.

SCRailway is going to introduce a weekly express train between HYDERABAD and VASCO-DA-GAMA and TIRUPATY and VASCO- DA- GAMA from the first week of JANUARY.These two trains will run combined between GUNTAKAL and VASCO-DA-GAMA.The slip coaches between HYB and VASCO may be withdrawn in the near future by increasing the frequency of the newly introduced trains between TPTY/HYB-- VASCO to DAILY.In that case ,the CC of HWH--VSG --HWH AMARAVATI EXP can be increased to 24 coaches .Let us hope for the best

Yes ...there is no denying in this fact...the very same amaravati which we are fighting aboutbto make to 24/26 coacher..that's the BZA-VSG train...when GC got done..it was extended to HWH and now the fate of SCR is to settle with a 4 coach slip.
The entire GC was done by SCR and handed over to SWR as part of Hubli division transfer to form SWR...it didn't even got its own dedicated VSG train till now ..not after many many many such requirsta and fights ..they converted the dedicates tpty-mao into two slips to serve both the regions even though its slow..

You won't see for sure...as long as RB won't give importance to this ghat...SWR is least bothered to consider about VSG...because that very own chat section is already being fully utilized ..and day by day its capacity is bring weakned which is forcing RB to decrease the capacity to 20 coaches ..
And regarding the goods traffic and the rake length...as there is no concept of 20 coach goods like a passenger train..they gave specification to run such lengthy goods with lesser loads ..
The loads you see in these ghts will be
...
more...
no where near to thr regular goods load you see everywhere else ..
Do you think SWR can introduce train just like that without approval from RB ? It is RB who dictates terms to every zone depending on many factors..if RB is not interested to lose any goods traffic by intoeucing a passenger train..then why SWR will show interest..
This new train also came after a long and long an dprolonged fight by SCR ..even this was also not intended to go this way..but SCR made it possible with consistent appeals to RB ..
If there is a mechanism to ask RB directly why its allocating SWR money to strengthen these chat sections and introduce new trains ..then some improvement may happen..otherwise ..no point of discussing about this ghat section ...nothing will come out if we fight here...better fight with the RB for same intensity to see things happening in VSG favour ..

But RM says something else only. He says this section is very important for IR that's why track doubling is being put on fast track.
He said it recently when he was in Goa for announcement of Madgaon Kulem track doubling.
If the Ghats are doubled will the same coach and capacity restrictions continue ?
Also regarding goods traffic numbers have come
...
more...
down due to mining ban but loads of an individual rake I don't think so infact coal imports are increasing yearly at MPT almost all of which is being moved by BOXN rakes via the Ghats. And no rakes are filled fully as they were earlier. I don't see any BOXN running with half loaded Wagons. All are filled as they were used to be earlier and in other sections too.
