The journey to Goa from Ahmedabad was indeed superb as we all were friends who got seats in same compartment. The journey started in ADI-Duronto express till Mumbai Central and then the same day train fro Mumbai CST to Madgaon in Majestic train Konkan Kanya Express.
We were in general compartment and it was fun to be in one! AC compartment will let you miss some of the memorizing views on way and the early morning bird sounds at a station where train stops for 3-5 mins. After crossing Thivim Station the nature takes a dress up and a decent view of nature till last point of Goa!
If you want to live in the city area leave the train in Thivim or Madagaon. That was the most beautiful train journey of my life as Goa was always a point of craze in my mind. I enjoyed it too much. Hope you also will enjoy a lot.
The travelling by train in Konkan was a nice experience. We have booked AC III tier ticket and the train was 30 min late. The sightseeing from train was nice. Bedding facility was given. The toilets were clean. The food was very nice and they give variety of breakfast
Train leaves at night and reaches in the morning time. Food options offered by caterers are better than most trains in India. Trains are mostly clean. Route is scenic and offers one of the best views enroute. Bathrooms are just okay avoid if you can. Just wake up early in the morning and enjoy view outside window.
Best timing to travel to Goa overnight journey in morning to reach Goa zoop. Train is comfortable in general travelling while approaching festivals or public holidays will have good people around in train. Three tier air condition coach is advisable.
Nice. It was a night journey. But train was late as there is only one track to reach Goa. But enjoyed a lot. Had fun with friends and the weather was nice outside and many tunnels came. Itís good to travel by night as you reach early morning. Hope to go by this train soon.
It was a superb journey. We too the train at night at 11.15 pm from Dadar and then got down at Karmali the next day morning at 10.20 am. The service in the train was good. I am very happy with that I got. It was really good. I had great fun! Would go in that route again.
There's no point in travelling by this train, as you hardly get a chance to enjoy the konkan railway, as most of the journey is in your sleep. Better to travel by a day time train, so that the sights are properly enjoyed. By chance, our train was late by more than 6 hours, so we got a chance to appreciate, what we would have missed, if we were on time.
The train got 10 minutes late, but that was ok. The best part was to go to Goa with friends for the first time. As we all know the toilet facilities with Indian railways is never up to the mark. If you travel by train you can get to see the sunrise from the train.
Kokan Kanya train is so late...it takes so much time to reach Goa. The best option is to go by another train and it will be better. There is so many trains form Mumbai to Gao. Go on irctc.co.in and search trains it will help you more by arrival and departure timings.
This is the best train in which I have travelled by to Goa. It picks you up from thane station at 12 am and drops you at Thivim around 9.45 am next day. It is an awesome experience to get up in the morning and see the beautiful scenery from the train. They offer good veg and non-veg biryani.
