There is no direct train. However you can take a train from chakki bank to Mumbai (Swaraj Express)and then from Mumbai to Goa. Your travel time would be min 40 hrs this way. Otherwise take a bus/train to Delhi and take another train to madgaon. Even if you goto delhi your total travel time would be over 40 hrs. Mumbai has more trains and buses heading to goa.
Also an important thing to note is avialability of tickets? When are you planning to travel and what is your budget from Mcleod to Goa?

You don't mention when you plan this trip, but if it is well after the Christmas/NY holiday period, flying the Delhi-Goa leg will spare you a long train journey and is not that expensive. For example, on makemytrip.com the fare shown for January 20 is Rp 3379 on three different airlines with departures from early morning to late afternoon. A direct flight is around 2 1/2 hours.

Perhaps someone will comment if there is an overnite Volvo bus from Mcleod -- combined with flight would probably be the most convenient way to go. However, if your plans are to be in Goa for Xmas, flights will probably be prohibitively expensive.

you're probably right about that -- the fare for Friday, Nov 28 would be rp 6778, or about double the mid-Jan fare.
