The train No. 17305/17306 Hubballi –Nizamuddin
Thanks. So these 2 coaches and the loco that powers 17305 remain at Londa till NZM-VSG/UBL train arrives back to Londa? And then return to UBL?
Yes those 2 coaches wait at Londa till 12780 NZM-VSG/UBL Arrival. But power retained will be of 12779 Goa Exp at Londa.
The power of 17305 Hubli link will be leading amalgamated Goa Exp till Pune.
But they should have added the HA1 Coach to the main portion.
very nice move...III-AC was badly required for this slip portion!
Right. Now all will get benefit.

So, the extn is in UBL-NZM portion..
SWR comes clean for once!
someone said that they are replacing A1 by HA1 .. thanks to SWR for clear cut info.
n order to cater to the extra rush of rail passengers and to enhance the passenger carrying capacity, Railway has decided to augment the following trains as under:
The 17305 Hubli- H.Nizamuddin Link express & 12779 Vasco Da Gama- H.Nizamuddin Goa Express Trains will be augmented from 01.09.2015 and 17306 H.Nizamuddin- Hubli Link express & 12780 H.Nizamuddin- Vasco Da Gama Goa Express Trains will be augmented from 03.09.2015 by one additional AC First class cum AC 2 tier Coach on permanent basis.
This may be pressure on RM to create two separate train as demanded in 2013 budget. Hope in next budget they will divide this train with two individuals
UBL check the PR section on SWR website.
But for now they should have given Goa portion the HA1 as its the main train and has high class tourists including foreign ones travelling to the holiday destination Goa. Or else both portions should have been given HA coach.
Otherwise they would given one 3AC to UBL slip and HA1 to Goa
Yeah it would have been much better augmentation.
