Hi.

I am currently looking at booking up tickets on the IRCTC website so I can travel from Goa to Hampi. I will be in Goa from 22nd Nov to 7th Dec and only wish to take 3 days out of my holiday to do the trip to Hampi. Unfortunately a lot of the possible trains I wish to use at this time are showing as cancelled when I look at the reservations before trying to book. As it stands the only way I can get to and from Hospet via the train is over a 5 day period due to cancelled trains.
Does anyone know whether these trains may come available at a later date?
I hope to get something booked before I go and so far I am having no luck - help!!

Train Cancelled?!

By luck I just checked my train between Hospet and Madgaon.

18- Oct- 2008
8047 AMARAVATHI EXP HPT 06.30 MAO
Charting Status * TRAIN CANCELLED

Do I read that correct that my train is really cancelled - even if I got confirmed tickets?
Does this happen ofter and why don't I get any information by IRCTC?

Do I have to cancel the tickets in IRCT too or is that done automatically?


I just checked the alternatives and it really looks bad. Via Hubli with a 12h stop isn't the prefered way. IS there any other way getting to Goa via train (besides bus)?

I really hope my other trains won't be cancelled too

Mod Note: Haiko I have moved your post to this thread because it is of the same subject matter.
Every cloud has a silver lining!

Many thanks for the reply VSP. You have confirmed that the trains I was looking at using are indeed for some reason canceled and indeed the service to Hampi has been reduced to 2 days a week. What I don't understand is why the service has been reduced at a time when many people would wish to travel this route? I was hoping that this was something that often happened and the trains might become available nearer the time.
I will keep checking the irctc website and hope for the best - or can you recommend any alternative trains that meet my requirements?

Looks like you'll be taking a bus

but seriously, it is absurd that they don't have daily trains for such a popular route, especially during high season!!!!! I have the same problem.
