Admin please update. CC from VSG as follows
SLR UR S1 to S9 B1 B2 B3 A1 UR - KCG Slip.
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.

A very good question!
See attached pic. I took it yesterday early morning at GTL. I was so intent on the newly POHed bright colored loco that I forgot to give any thought to the coaches it was shunting.
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.

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.
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.

Yes. Or might be, like I mentioned, few parcel vans along with the 2 GEN coaches are added like in KSK to make it 24 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.
