My journey was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Toilets were clean and food as well as water available in the pantry car. Journey was very good and comfortable. Each trip was wonderful and all the people I shared the cabin with were also great people. Goa is a very nice and safe place and I will visit again soon.
Train is on time and seats are in very good condition and also the environment in the train is excellent. It is good to travel with this train. This train takes less time in comparison to other trains in this route. Overall it was an awesome experience.
This is the best train to travel from Pune to Goa. We travelled in sleeper class and reason for that is we enjoyed the beauty and sea nary on the way to Goa. The toilets were not that much clean in the train. Food was not available in the ticket but there was pantry was there to purchase the food.
All in all a wonderful experience. Everything was well-organized with many highlights. Due to the busy itinerary we had too little time to socialize with other passengers. Food was good for train cuisine.
This train stops at less number of stop/stations. Food is served and ticket price includes food price also. But it is not a daily train and it leaves from New Delhi on Tuesday/Wednesday/Sunday only 1A- first class AC coach you will get a separate cabin which has 4 berths inside it.
Goa Express takes more time. So, I would suggest other passengers to board Mangala Express. Travelling in Goa Express was a good experience, seats were good. Toilets were clean, food water and other refreshments were available time to time. In the train we were often disturbed by the beggars, there was no proper dustbin in the train. Stoppages were many.
If your and an old age passenger you should prefer AC 3 tier coach and if you are young then you can afford sleeper seat's. I liked the journey to Delhi. The facility given in the AC coach was good with clean toilets. The food was good and clean and food was available at every station. There was variety of food available.
Even after making the booking 60 days in advance our tickets were not confirmed till the last day. Just 2 hours before departure I received the confirmation sms from IRCTC. We were overjoyed and made the packing hurriedly. The travel was so exciting and we all enjoyed the train journey. Kids enjoyed so much and made new friends in the train. It was like a family affair inside the train compartment where everybody was enjoying to their fullest.
