Don't know bro, already searching the internet. It was when my father and Uncle(b. 1958) were in childhood/teenage. Well if you want a guess i think it used to run till Machalipatnam before GC, after wards cancelled between Gnt and bza and short terminated
It's scheduled overtake if 18048 is supposed to arrive BBS before 17016 then overtake has to happen. Simple as that even some SF trains have scheduled overtakes over other SFs. As a result of this ECoR goof 18048 reached 50 minutes late at HWH. Amaravati has SF schedule on par with other SFs infact faster than some SFs in BZA HWH stretch.
Try it or else why don't you take buses from Madgaon or Ponda ? But please don't test General compartments of this train except in June and July even if you get a seat at Vasco you will have trouble while getting down, even SL is pathetically crowded in this train. KSRTC buses are much better than this train for Vasco Hubballi route. Plenty of them ply from Vasco and Panjim to Hubballi all go via Ponda and the Vasco ones also touch Madgaon but not the Panjim ones.
in worst case,if u didnt get tickets on amaravathi,Do Not try to board UR coaches for god sake,it will be hell of rush,u cant even find space to stand on footboard unless u reach vasco so early nd get a window seat in UR
