Hi
I've been checking out the train schedules looking for a good connection between Goa and Mysore. The 7310, 7312 and the 7228 are the trains that have been recommended to me, leaving Madgaon and changing at HUBLI for MYSORE, but the connections (6218, 1035) mean waiting for at least 12 hours overnight in HUBLI, which I don't really want to do. If anyone has any other advice for me on the best way to get to MYSORE from GOA by train I'd really appreciate it.


Cheers
Matt

Goa to Mysore by train is a rather long journey, the way you describe it i.e Goa->Londa->Bangalore->Mysore.
Instead, take Konkan train up to Mangalore, and take a bus to Mysore. OR, take an overnight bus all the way from Goa.
Look up the railway map here

Trains to Goa from Mysore

Earlier during the Meter Gauge service daily a pair of trains from Mysore and Bangalore used to link at Arisikere Jn and run as a composite train to Vasco (Goa). However after conversion to BG the Mysore Link has been dropped and only a Bi-weekly Express from Yeshwantpur ( Bangalore) is running. This is progress by Indian Railways ! Always ready to give the private Road Transport to mint money.

There used to be a nice train from Goa to Mysore that passed right by Dhudusagar falls in Goa. I took it many years ago, but sorry to say it's no longer.
