[Edit]: The entry to the falls through the Railway Tracks have been strictly banned by the railways and hence this tip would not be applicable going forward. Kindly take a note of it.
This tip is exclusively for Boarding the 12779 Goa Express from Dudhsagar Station in the evening and is based on my recent visit to the falls.
1. Tickets: Please take return tickets from wherever you start your journey as DDS doesn't have a ticket counter. Its better if you have prior reservations done. If you don't have tickets and get

into reserved bogies, the TTE's charge 50 Rs per passenger for going from DDS to Londa(I had noticed this)
2. Halt: The 12779 Goa Express halts at DDS for a minute. Hence try to make it quicker to the station, atleast 20 mins before the scheduled time. This period is enough for a group of 10 people to get in through one entrance.
3. Getting in: Many people would be waiting here to board this train as this is the last train towards Londa Jn which halts here and hence if the crowd near one compartment is more, try to board from the nearby compartments.
4. Reserved Accommodation: If you have a reserved accommodation, please note the coach position from IRI in advance. You may ask the Station Master about the position of your coach.
5. Security: Last year when we boarded from DDS, we didn't see any RPF officials at the station. This year though, some RPF personnel(6-8) were present at DDS station to ensure the safety of passengers boarding the Goa Express.
Final TIP: Please avoid visiting the falls on a weekend.
PICS: These pictures show the no of people boarding the Goa Express on a weekday(Tuesday) and hence you can predict what it would be like to board the train on a weekend. (Fortunately, everyone boarded the train safely with hussle and bussle but no one was left stranded)

    This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

PNR Predictions by members can be seen by ALL, before and after Charting. New members often look towards our expert predictors for hints, and we are reinstanting that. . 2. To better...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

    @all: IRI is a PUBLIC information website, like Wikipedia. The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...

    This is a clarification to all members regarding our Forum Guidelines and the FM Group. SWs are issued for very clear cases of abuse and misbehaviour by a member. . At this time, we have had many members against whom SW is issued claim that: "I am a long-time member of IRI, and have...
