Hi everyone,

Little help please. Im not sure of the names of the railway stations in Goa, can somebody please shed some light. Also, can anyone suggest a really cheap flight out there, something under 400.

Muchos Thanks,
Marky
Arriving in Delhi on March 7th 2007, hopefully I won't miss too many Man Utd matches on the way to the title.

Have a look in the train information thread, go to the 2nd post and click on 'Mumbai to Goa'.

I added the Goa stations to that post a while ago, and I'm sure I've not changed it.

I can usually find London-Mumbai return flights for 330-350 just by searching on the net, maybe Manchester will also have cheap flights.

Another quicky if I may.

Is Goa's airport on the railway line? I'm planning to meet my girlfriend there and if I can catch a train straight to te airport it would be brilliant.

nope, you will need to get a taxi.


also, if you are travelling from Mumbai, you can fly really cheaply to Goa, try looking at www.spicejet.com

The division that operates trains in goa is Konkan railway. You can even see the map on their website. 'About us' and then KRmap.
The airport is at Vasco, there is a railway station but as Jamie mentioned you have to take a taxi or 'pilot' (the motorcycle version of taxi) careful though, they don't have breathalysers there.

Actually only the North South stretch of rail is run by konkan Railways
these stations

Pernem
Karmali
Tivim
Verna
Majorda
Suruvali
Margao (Madgaon)
Balli
Canacona

The East West section is run by Southern or South Western railways.
These stations

Vasco De Gama
Sanverdum Chuch
Kulem

It a worthwhile distinction to make, as traveling on say the Goa Express, which travels between Vasco and Delhi you cannot book the foreign tourist quota at Margao, even although the train stops there, it's a Konkan Railway station. You have to book foreign tourist Quota tickets in Vasco
Trains which use the coastal route or Konkan railway to Mumbai and beyond, can be reserved at Margao including the foreign tourist quota!!

Great info, I learn something new about Indian Railways almost every day.

Yes, it's South Western Railway.

The Konkan railway between Goa and Mumbai passes through the coastal range somewhat inland. In Goa itself the train travels through the coastal plain and some hill country.

I have travelled that route only at night(twice) from Mumbai so saw little scenery except in the morning when the train makes several crossings of rivers and estuaries but not very near the sea.

The main stations in Goa on the north-south Konkan railway are Karmali, for Panjim and Margao, for Margao. There are several other stations which are closer to destinations in north and south Goa.

Vasco-da-Gama station is the terminus of the east-west railway that reaches that city. For a short distance, that railway passes close to the sea.
