The only Escalator on Pf 1 at Madgaon rly stn, KR's busiest station.
There looks to be someone purposely pressing the Emergency Stop when the train is announced on Pf2/3 at Madgaon rly stn & there is no attendant available to switch on again. it has happened to me earlier.
Yesterday 21/03/2022, I used the escalator at 18.00 hrs, but when a train was announced coming on Pf2 the escalator was blinking red, most people had to use the stairs, some aged people had to struggle with their
luggage, coolies were present. Similar problem I faced in Csmt too. Attendant Missing, coolies eagerly waiting.

The best overnight train to travel on Konkan Railway specifically for Goa bound passengers. I finally got my first experience to travel in the "Rocket" and it really lived upto its name. Please find my observations based on my travel from Thane to Karwar and Madgaon to Thane in 3AC compartment listed below:
1. Punctuality: I've heard about it being delayed in the recent past due to the delayed departure but during my instance, it reached the destination quite decently. The Speeds that it hits are truly a treat for the railfans. 12134 impressed me a lot with the Alco chugging and going on a spree after Kankavali. The only issue is the 12134 getting a delayed departure from MAJN. In the
DOWN direction, it departed with a delay of half an hour and reached Karwar with a delay of a couple of hours and in the UP direction, it departed MAO with a delay of half an hour and reached Thane with a delay of an hour.
2. Coaches and Cleanliness: The Coach is of customary ICF design with decent interiors. The Linens and Pillows were very clean. Both 12133 and 12134 have OBHS(On-board Housekeeping Service) and the 3AC Coaches were quite clean. The staff arrived after MAO to collect the leftovers at each berth. Charging points with mobile holder are present at each bay and Side berths as well. A mirror is provided at each bay.
3. Toilets: It is equipped with Bio-Toilets (atleast in 3AC) and liquid soaps are provided. The toilets were quite clean throughout the journey.
4. Food: As there is no pantry car, food is provided by private vendors. In 12133, we had Veg Sandwich for 40 Rs which was decent. In 12134, the food was loaded at Kumta and served till we reached Kankavali. Chicken Biryani and Chapati Bhaji were available during our travel. Chapati Bhaji costed Rs. 45(4 Chapatis ad Potato Curry) and the taste was average and not that great. The roti is made of Refined Flour(Maida) and not Wheat Flour.
5. Booking/Reservation: If you are travelling from Mumbai To Madgaon and find the seats full, book upto Udupi. CSTM to UD comes under General Quota and hence there more seats available.
6. Railfanning: As it is a overnight train, there is not much in terms of railfanning(upto MAO) other than the lovely Alco chugging sounds and the magnificent speeds. If you are travelling upto MAJN, then you are in for a treat as it goes on a spree after MAO.
Have a safe trip.

Yes. Even for me it has surpassed konkan kanya which was my previous favourite for overnight journey on KR.

Due to its speed and priority in the KR section during old legacy days. Although it runs with almost close to the old legacy days due to less congestion on KR due to covid-19, it was getting badly delayed pre-covid times.

nope the local taxi unions doesn't allow them to operate and govt. doesn't do anything because the taxi drivers and their families are vote banks for political parties and they don't want to lose that

You can take a prepaid auto to old goa church Rs. 100/-. or to
Panjim bustand Rs. 300/-.
Buses to panjim from old Goa church every 5 minutes.
Panjim. you can hire self drive cars or 2 wheelers on daily basis, lots of choice.

As per the review of that app. it deducts 200 rs when you want to book the taxi. It goes for search after money is deducted. And most of the time you will get message that no taxis around your area. Then if you want to refund the money it goes to application wallet or paytm. So if you planning for it to be for Airport or Railway station, be careful.

Catching a bus on the flyover bridge is not safe ladies & families as you have to walk on the tracks. Back packers prefer this route.

Just outside PF1 there is prepaid taxi stand where you can tell the exact address and book a taxi. We went to Panaji and paid Rs. 1150/- Surprisingly, we booked cab from outside Panaji Bus stand while returning. The cab driver picked us from hotel and dropped to Madgaon Jn in Rs 900/- only.

There is park approx 1.5 KMS away from Madgaon Jn. Its call Aga Khan Children's Park and just near to it there is Govt park. The Aga Khan was closed when we reached there (it was 2 PM) but Govt park was open. There was cool breeze flowing so we sat and enjoyed. The park was clean. Just nearby the park, there is ice-cream shop. Ice cream was really nice. The auto rickshaw charged Rs. 120 from railway station (outside pf 3) and same amount while returning to station. People were waiting just outside the park for buses going to various destinations in Goa
