Vasco da Gama
Port town of Goa
Named after the Portuguese Explorer Vasco Da Gama
Londa - Madgaon - Vasco was the only Railway route to Goa. Coal / diesel Trains were running on metre gauge tracks since 1887 Portuguese time (Now broad gauge 1998).
trains were leaving from here to Bombay daily one was Mandovi Express. We switched trains at Miraj junction from metre gauge to broad gauge, electric Train.
Goa now also has Konkan Railway route since 1998.

Goa Express that arrived late after 8am - Looks like it was Hubali/Banglore/Vasco coaches, board on it said so. They were the first 2-3 coaches behind engine. Few minutes later, the engine got detached from the train along with those 2-3 empty coaches.

Actually, it was my pleasure trip on Maiden Tejas Express (pics/video posted earlier) from Karmali Station to Kudal which is about 100kms and fare was Rs.375 + 13 charges. It was to arrive Kudal at 3.30pm and I was to take my train back on Mandovi Express at 3.50pm. Bought ticket Rs.50 to Karmali. No sign of the Train, I was told it was delayed by 40 mins but eventually the delay was about 4 hours. Diva - Sawantwadi passengers which was to arrive there at 5.15 was also delayed by an hour so took the train at 6.10pm and finally arrived back at KRMI at 8.20pm. VIP culture still exists? Why local passenger train are always made to give way to others?
wait at KUDL saw the delayed Veraval Express passing by, Jan Shatabdi express etc videos of which will be posted later.

It was said tea/coffee vending machines each compartment. I did not see any. Nor I was offered Tea/Coffee despite asking. No food served in the first one hour despite paying some catering charges nor there were chances to offer to any pax in the first 2.5hrs or until the train leaves Ratnagiri where all food items are stocked. They did offer a water bottle though.
