How much this train is made to crawl betn Goa to Khandwa.
Departed from LD on 3rd May more than 2hrs late and still arrived KNW next day bang on time.
2hrs slack is very high can be easily speeded up by 30 to 40 mins as such high delays are not so common in SWR-CR route maybe once or twice a year and remaining 363 days its made to crawl.

now iron ore mining has been restarted in Goa & adjoining K' BOXN wagons will again come into action very shortly via Single Line & such delays will be normal.
remember,Iron ore was the primary freight in this belt for which movement was stopped since past 1 yr

Freight movement was never stopped here, coal is also heavily moved here and freight trains are usually looped for xing or OT when Goa arrives. Also HPT VSG track doubling taken up by SWR. Only 106 kms of VSG LD is a heavy freight route but still slack too high of 2hrs. I'm not against the entire slack but atleast 30 to 40mins can be done away with.
