Does anyone know if there is a direct night train that takes you from Thekkady to Goa?

There doesn't appear to be a station by this name but I understand that not all stations are listed by their name.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thekkady is not connected by train. To train from Kerala to Goa the Konkan railway thru Mangalore is the only choice.

Would the nearest station by car from Thekkay on this line to Goa be in Cochin? Or is there a closer station?

Thanks for your help

Kottayam is the nearest Railway station from Thekkady but it has only a weekly train to Goa [ Madgaon]. If you could make it to Ernakulam JN,You could board Netravathi express [ Train #6346 / Daily ] which Departs @ 14:15 and reaches Madgaon the next Day @ 06:15 Hrs

Hope this helps !

No direct train, take the Mangalore mail to Mangalore, and then hop on to Matsyagandha Express, reaches Madgaon some weird time in the night. It would be a bit of touch and go at Mangalore, may not work if the mail is late.

The other option is to take the West Coast Express, stay a night in Mangalore, and then take the morning passenger train to Madgaon.
