Ever heard of chicken lollypops and veg spring roll being served in trains? well this is one such train journey you can never forget. Tomato soup, Chicken lollypop, Chicken fried rice and chicken manchurian is cooked in the pantry and is served in this train.

No need to carry your dinner with you because if you don't like chinese these guys serve you veg and non veg thali and a range of sweet dishes including rasgulla and gulab jamun.

This train is mostly 1 to 2 hours late so if you have a tight schedule and if you have boarded this train then you are in for a nightmare. However this train halts at all major stations in Goa starting from Pernem, Thivim, Karmali and Margao.

In spite of not reaching on time ever, to get tickets in this train, you need to book 2months prior to the date of your journey.
