#Name :- This train was named as Mandovi Express which comes from the Mandovi River. Mandovi River is described as the lifeline of the state of Goa. The river has a length of 77 km and originates from a cluster of 30 springs at Bhimgad in the Western Ghats. The Dudhsagar Falls lie on the Mandovi. Panaji, the
state capital and Old Goa, the former capital of Goa, are both situated on the left bank of the Mandovi.
#Description :- The Mumbai-Madgaon Mandovi Express is an important train which operates between Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and Madgaon Junction and is currently operated by the Central Railway and the Konkan Railway.
