GT ka schedule pehle se hi aisa hai, ulta NR abhi sudhra hai varna roz overtake kha kar GT 3-3 hrs late aa rahi thi bina vajah. Agar Goa ko pehle pahuchana hai to RM se try karna chahiye.

Goa ET kayi bar BT hoti hai outer pe rokte hai taki GT age daud sake. Goa ko kafi slack hai BSL to ET tak. Goa go ET se hi age chalana chahiye aur GT ko Goa ke piche. Goa ka mazak ban jata hai NCR mein kadam rakte hi, har dusre ya tisre din 12621 se OT karvate rehte hai. South wali SFs mein sirf 12779 ki punctuality worst hai NZM pe.
PS: For Gods sake I'm not a NCR hater infact they are doing a tremendous job maintaining the punctuality of other South SFs like TN, KK, Telangana or AP, etc.

Kya hoga agar 12615 ko ET se 12779 ka TT allot kiya jaye aur 12779 ko 12615 ka till NZM. It will be sensible as 12779 have only 5 halts till NZM and 12615 14. Nearly 3 times more. 12615 can arrive NZM at 6.15, NDLS around 6.40 and DEE around 7.15.

As IR is on the mission of converting the train from ICF to LHB. Don't you think some legendary train like TAMILNADU, TELANGANA, KERALA, GOA, KARNATAKA, GT, SBC MAS Mail, GODAVARI, PUNJAB MAIL, GOLDEN TEMPLE, GEETANJALI, JANESHWARI, PASHCIM, BHOPAL EXP, etc should be considered for giving priority.

Than the best solution would be first LHB rake should be alloted to AVANTIKA EXP & VADODARA EXP than give on to telangana exp or TN exp.

Tamil Nadu khud k state k logo ko serve nahi karti
Fir vo kaha ki state named exp Hai
Karnataka Kerala Telangana(AP) ye apne states ko bohat ache se serve karte Hai
And Jo Bina ruke hi daudte rahe aur fir b baaki teen k average jaisa hi uska speed ho vo koi jyada badi nhi Hai
Kerala AP are actual aggressive kyuki inke stops inke respective states me jyada Hai
Aur itne Stoppages hone k Baad b ye teen best Hai
Ha TN bhi best Hai but ye fact Hai k vo khud k state k logo ko serve nahi karti

Many people from various cities from TN undertake break Journey at Chennai to board TNSF Exp. It is not that TN does not cater Tamilnadu. It caters chennai directly and the other parts indirectly. It is due to this reason TN is faster than AP(Telengana),KL and KK. It cannot cater the other parts of the state due its political location on the map of TN. You cannot go south to reach delhi na...

A short trip report of my journey from Vasco to Sanvordem in 12779 Goa Super Express.
I had to go to Vasco Da Gama today for some work in Mormugao Municipality today. My work was over by 2.45 pm. Now the question rose in my mind should I go back to my home via the same 2 bus trip which I took in the morning for reaching VSG or should I wait till evening for the one train and one bus trip back to home in the evening Vasco Kulem passenger. But after watching that it was 2.45 pm and the municipality is just near to the Railway station I set my eyes in 12779 super which earlier I had spotted in
the VSG yard with a KJM WDP4. So I rushed to the station brought a UR ticket to SVM and boarded a UR coach third from the loco.
Now comes the main part. Train was parked on PF#1. Kulem Vasco passenger was resting on PF#2. PNBE VSG was being shunted in the yard by a WDM3D most probably from ET shed with as usual two extra SL coaches after S11. A BOXN rake loaded with some coils was awaiting for its turn to enter the Port. Just few minutes before our departure a coal loaded BOXN arrived at VSG from the Port led by UBL WDG4 twins. Regarding rush luckily I got a seat, not much rush in SL coaches may be due to offseason.
The EMD beast gave a thundering roar and we left VSG sharp at 3.10 pm. The EMD did not show its true power till Sankval from where it started speeding up, overtaking a weirdly coupled Twin WDG4 loaded BOXN rake both were 4500 HP WDG4s evident from their livery both coupled in LHF mode which was quite surprising besides two BCNA rakes were also there in the Zuari Industries rail siding at Sankval.
After Sankval train skipped Cansaulim at good speed not MPS though crossing a Twin WDG4 led BOXN rake bound to Vasco. Surprisingly we skipped Majorda Junction through the PF#1 instead of the main line. But after that the EMD thundered all the way to MAO outers at MPS skipping Suravali at MPS. After waiting for about 5 minutes at outers we entered MAO at 3.50 pm on PF#1, where we met the "Bengali Damsel in Distress" 18047 UP HWH VSG Amaravati express running late by around 1 hour 50 minutes hauled by SCR's GY WDG3A Twins on PF#2. This poor train was heavily delayed in Dharwad Londa stretch may be due to HPT VSG track doubling works. I wanted to notice its CC but when I had just stated and was nearing the AC coaches few coaches of KR parked on the track between our platforms blocked my view. Lots of people boarded the train at MAO both making the UR coaches overcrowded. Lots of reserved passengers too.
We departed MAO after around 7 to 8 minutes and skipped SJDA while the EMD was still trying to accelerate after few minutes it accelerated to MPS and skipped Chandor within no time while crossing a Twin WDG4 led BOXN to Vasco. After few minutes the EMD started to deaccelerate indicating that its next halt SVM my destination was nearing. Finally entered SVM at around 4.20 pm where I bid farewell and Happy journey to Goa Super and went to the SVM Railway station bus stop for a 14 kms bus ride back to home. Moderate rush at SVM.
Lol even the bus was in MPS mood reached my destination in just 15 minutes ie. 14 kms in 15 minutes which is great for local private buses in Goa.
This was the end of a wonderful one train and one bus ride to home.
Thank you.
PS: Loco link KJM WDP4 #20057 as per my das he whenever he goes near VSG Railway station he has spotted Goa Super with EMD so members please confirm the link and update.

A few notings after the trip.
1. Goa express link most probably changed from KJM Alco to KJM EMD, can be updated on our site after further confirmation.
2. Construction work of additional platforms going on at Madgaon Jn.
3. Once a SCR's GY Alco dominated section ie. VSG to QLM is taken over by SWR's KJM and UBL Alcos and EMDs. Now only
Amaravati express gets GY Alcos here even for banking passenger rakes they use UBL WDG4s spotted 2 months back on my trip on VSG YPR express to Londa Jn.
4. During Alco reign I never witnessed 12779 at MPS in VSG QLM stretch but today the EMD gave it to me.
