Slip route is a group of coaches that are separated from the main train and attached to another going in a different direction.

In this case 7603 is a Hyderabad to Bangalore train to which a few coached that go to Madgaon or Vasco are attached. There are separated in Guntakal and attached to Amaravati Exp coming from Vijayawada/Howrah.

Haripriya/Rayalseema exp goes to Londa if that is where you plan to go. But if its the beaches you want to go, then 7603 is the only train.

You don't need to do anything. Just buy the ticket. The coach alloted will be the one that goes to Vasco.

The carriages are now seperated at Dhone Jn, your train arrives at Dhone Jn at 02:15, but don't worry, the train staff go through the carriages ringing a loud bell to make sure everyone is in the correct carriage.

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

Steven: The time table certainly does say Dhone, but it is still Guntakal. I have travelled this route quite often in very recent past (under a month ago)and it is not Dhone.

Very good point, I can't see the train passing through Guntakal without stopping, it must be a mistake in the timetable.

Let's hope they don't ring the bell when the train arrives at Dhone.

The slip route to or from Goa doesn't touch Dhone at all. So no bell either at Dhone or for that matter at Guntakal.
While returning from Goa, the train reaches Guntakal at 5pm and leaves only at 10pm after it is attached to the SBC - KCG train. So a 5 hour layover.

Let me explain this way:

Haridwar being shown on the "slip route" indicates that not all coaches in the train go to Haridwar.
When the train from Allahabad reaches Aligarh Jn., the "slip source," the coaches bound for Dehradun are separated from the main body to form the Link Express, while the rest of the train moves on to Meerut City --- the Dehradun coaches "slip" off the train at Aligarh Jn. It is only these "slip coaches" that pass through Haridwar.

You need not have to change to any other train at any station. During reservation itself you will be placed in the respective slip coach.

There is more on "slip coaches" at the IRFCA Web site.

i know DrRudi, but i am tired of making "please look at the previous post's date' comments...i chalk it up to enthusiasm to help. while i myself have difficulties judging the proper place to draw the line ( between being helpful, and being overly so), i guess this thread will be preserved for posterity, and so might help someone else who comes along

i did note that it was bharatd's first post, so did not want to be discouraging.

in some forums, it would also be remarked that the last post of the OP itself seems to have been terminated abruptly, so there must have been a "no carrier" situation.
