Kochi-Palolem by Train

Hello,
Justa quick question, I'll be travelling from Kochin to Goa (Palolem) and would like to know that best station to alight at for Palolem? I know that the nearest station to Palolem is Canacona but I don't think that the express trains stops there.

Would it be best for me to alight in Mangalore and connect to Canacona or Margao?

Any advice appreciated!

Thanks

Karwar is 36 Kms from Cancona.

Train 6334 departs Ernakulam Town station on Mondays at 19:55 and gets to Karwar at 09:06.

Train 6336 departs Ernakulam Town station on Thursdays at 19:55 and gets to Canacona at 09:29.

Train 6338 departs Ernakulam Junction station on Wednesdays & Fridays at 19:55 and gets to Karwar at 09:06.

Train 2977 departs Ernakulam Junction station on Sundays at 19:55 and gets to Karwar at 09:06.

Fare from Ernakulam to Karwar: -

2-tier air con = Rs 1242
3-tier air con = Rs 796
Sleeper Class = Rs 293 (not air con)

The fare will be slightly more to Canacona or on train 2977.

It will only take an hour to get from Karwar to Canacona by bus, but if your train is a little late there is another train that may be useful.

Train KR2 departs Karwar daily at 11:21 and gets to Canacona at 11:46.

Thanks everyone!

P.s. Steven, I ended up booking my ticket before reading your email (grrr). Anyway, Im actually booked on the Jodphur Express, leaving on sat night, unfortunately it doesn't stop in Karwar so I guess I will have to alight in Madgaon.
