It has to be done fast and full project to be completed at the earliest, as a large region of India does not have direct connectivity to a unique and major tourist destination of our nation, i.e. Goa, which has been is denied due to saturation of the existing single line.

For rest of days can they introduce this train to shimoga since atleast from their mangalore or dharmastala will be near by road way as my sugession for swr and scr zones.
Since for AP tirupathi is pilgrim city and for karnataka dharmastala great place.
The Dudhsgar Falls have become inaccessible owing to restrictions imposed at the nearby railway station by Indian Railways. In order to enable tourists to get a glimpse of this glorious waterfall, the tourism department of Goa has urged the Railway Ministry to improve connectivity to the spot.
For the Second year Dudhsagar water falls now cannot be accessed by the rail trek as the SW Railways has declared this as dangerous and prohibited tourists from walking on the track.
Currently no trains stop at Dudhsagar.
Ir must not block the visit but try to improve connectivity to dudh sager
They have to make exclusive tourism spot railway station near by falls and should run trains to and from that station.
Manjunath Hegde Bomnalli describes a scenic train journey in a difficult terrain between Castle Rock in Karnataka and Kulem in Goa.
Tourists heading towards the famous Dudhsagar Waterfalls in Goa or passengers moving farther by train cannot escape from the magic of the journey in Braganza Ghat between Castle Rock railway station in Karnataka and Kulem railway station in Goa.In addition to the gigantic waterfalls, trains moving slowly with the support of multiple engines on the tracks laid right across the dense forests and rocky mountains of the Western Ghats also entrance them.Watching trains moving in front of Dudhsagar Waterfalls has been a rare and cherished moment for many tourists, and a few films have also popularised this spot. But, unlike the
This route is awesome, traveled many times from Hubli in 17311
Awesome route. Lucky to have traveled during MG days which was a lot better than BG. Still love the old Madgaon MG Station in the town itself.
Current BG station is far from old MG station ?
About 1.5 to 2km away from old MG station. There used to be a level crossing and no ROB like now. One thing good about Goa those days hardly any Indian tourists visited the place and it was really peaceful unlike now.
Yeah agree during MG 5 daily trains existed on this route now only 1 daily and 5 weeklies. Main focus is on freight trains here.
More tourist got attracted after opening KR
KR in a way has destroyed Goa. Am sure once the rail line to Srinagar is opened it is going to destroy Kashmir too. These rail lines bring beggars and other unwanted people to these places.
There are positive part of it also. Employments, Exploring new routes, Business, Civil contracts, Hotels, etc.
KR with long tunnels and bridges is a marvel railway with great engineering work
After introducing KR the places on the century old route of Londa Vasco are become prone to neglection by IR, even the MG trains are not restored properly.
