Would anyone help to know time of buses from Madgaon statin to Panaji. I would arrive from Delhi to MAO by 7PM (could be late by 1-2 hours). Will I get buses late at that time?

For going to Panjim, are buses available from outside the station or do we have to go to Pernem Bus Stand? Where is the Pernem Bus stand? In Pernem town?

I think Kadamba has integrated their schedules on google maps. Because I can see buses between pernem rly station and panjim with their timings on it.

transferring of rail tickets can be done to any other person such as father, brother, or anyone. By changing the name of the traveling person the rail ticket transfer can be done. Chief Reservation Supervisor of major stations is authorized to change the name of the traveler.
The Indian Railways transfer ticket options let the users transfer their ticket on to the name of other passengers instead of canceling the ticket when it not required. So people can check the Indian railway’s ticket transfer process from this article with clear steps.
How to Transfer the Booked Train Ticket to Others – Details are Here
Transfer of Rail Ticket Facility will be granted for:
Government servants
Students
Marriage parties
NCC students
Family members
Rules to transfer the booked railway ticket
The travelers can change/transfer the ticket only once.
The train ticket transfer must be requested before 24 hours of the travel time.
The same rule of 24 hours of time will be applicable to government employees as well.
If it is a marriage party the transfer has to be made for other members of the crew and also the transfer must be made before 48 hours before the train time.
The ticket transfer is allowed up to 10 members only.
How to Transfer Booked Train Ticket
Approach the station master/ chief reservation supervisor and submit the application for transferring the booked ticket.
Also, while applying for the transfer the applicant is supposed to submit the Xerox copy of any valid proof which defines the relationship of the other person with whom the ticket would be transferred.
Proofs like ration card, bank passbook, voter I-Card, etc. are accepted.
The chief reservation supervisor or the station manager would then give the permission and make changes to the Rail Ticket according to the application.
Passengers have to make a note that manual changes will be made to the existing ticket and No new ticket shall be issued by Indian Railways.

Udupi Station has only some light refreshment stalls on PF 1. PF2 has only a small strip of shelter like a village R.S.
The station is slightly on an elevated level. There is an elevator to reach the car park from just outside PF 1.
A small budget lodge and an eatery is there just behind tourist car park. Udupi city centre is about 4 kms from the station and Udupi-Manipal highway is about half a km away.

auto facility seems to be there, although I am not sure if it functions effectively.
The display of coach position is interesting at the notice board. It does not show position of coaches from engine and direction. Instead it shows a coach will stop at the number where it is displayed. For example in our train 22475, engine was at number 24 on the platform, where it stopped. Our coach was 10th from engine. The display notice mentioned A1 would be where 14 number is on the platform. Bit confusing for non regular passengers.
There are just one or two porters at the station who normally show up only before a train is scheduled to arrive. Unless, we request the station staff to call him over his cell phone.

May 10 2015 (16:33)   LTT/Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (5 PFs)

I have seen many people complaining about the LTT station. I personally feel that it is a very good station but only if you know some things about LTT.
1) If you stay far away from LTT, then please book MERU cab or any other cab online. Never take a cab/auto from the cabs/autos waiting at the stations, they demand ridiculously high fares for even the shortest distances. You can altenately go outside the station inside Tilaknagar where you may get a cab/auto which charges normal fare.
2) If your train reaches LTT

at odd time(in case the train is late) stay in the dormitory rather than waiting in the station premises as there are a number of thiefs and they mostly target passengers travelling alone.(Checkout time of dormitory is 8am)
3) Always reach 1hr before the departure of your train to the station especially if you don't know much about the station or if you are first time traveller from this station.
4) The station is well connected to Domestic and International airports and Navi Mumbai by Santacruz-Chembur Link Road(SCLR). Also connected to Navi Mumbai by Harbour Line.
5) Nearest Suburban station is Tilaknagar and if you hav to go to this station please go to the end of the platform it is near from there ascompared to the new building.
6) One good thing is that a lot of people go to Tilaknagar station after the arrival of a train so no problems evan if you arrive at 11pm or 12am.
7) If you have to go to Central suburbs like Vikroli, Bhandup or even Kurla, get down at Thane/Kalyan and get a suburban train from there.

Retiring Rooms are available at Cstm, Mumbai Central, Ltt, Bandra. At Cstm I am not sure where it is, but I have heard that the furniture there is quite old, Ltt & bandra is not suitable for families because of the surrounding area

Now all the approach roads to LTT as well as Tilaknagar are in a good shape.
All thanks to Rail Minister coming to LTT for inauguration of LTT - Tatanagar Antyodaya, or else the roads would have never been repaired.
