Travel Question
May 10 2015 (12:34)   19261/Kochuveli - Porbandar (Weekly) Express (PT) | KAWR/Karwar (2 PFs) | KYN/WDM-3A

I'm planning to book on 19261 Porbander Express from Karwar to Panvel on this September, i.e., Departing from KRWR by 2.50 AM and arriving at PNVL by 14.55 PM on the same day. Following that immediately I need to take up the local train from Panvel to reach Kurla station to enable us catch our flight to chennai at 20.20 (Maximum allowed check-in time is 19.20)

I need your valuable suggestions in fixing the above plan mainly on the below gray areas of our plan -

1. With monsoon timings in place will it be reliable to plan on 19261 Porbander Exp which arrives at PNVL by 14.55 under monsoon timings?
2. Not sure which is the nearest railway station to Mumbai domestic airport in PNVL-CLA (Kurla) route, till now we counted Kurla as the nearest station to airport which is 10 kms away from Airport and travel by call taxi takes 30 minutes (as per info got from web) and travel time from PNVL to CLA should be less than an hour by local train (will this remains the same even during monsoon??) Also is all the above information got from the web is close to reality?
Please provide your valuable suggestion/advice that could help me finalzise this plan .

agreed that cla is congested...but that is upto getting down from train to pf, once you are on the pf, clear indications exist as to which is east and which is west...also local people are extremely helpful
kurla is also the best resort for airport as we have the sclr now which quickens movement from there...hence i would say kurla is a better way out

Good that you wish to cover Konkan route. But if you board the train at 2 am, you would miss a good 4 hrs of scenery. The scenic route ends roughly 1.5 hrs short of Panvel.
When dont you take the Mandovi exp from MAO in the morning and spend the night in Mumbai and then fly the next day to Chennai. Karwar to MAO route too is great.

Dear sir,
Thanks for suggesting to count on CLA for the onward movement to airport. What does SCLR mean?

Dear sir,
Thanks for suggesting that even KRWR - MAO route should not be missed. Will look into the options of taking Mandovi :)

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
