12431 Rajdhani Express blasting at 130kmph through 2 bridges & 2 tunnels in just 2 minutes in the Konkan Railway section between Madgaon (goa) & Udipi.
Sharavathi River near Honnavar
In Goa there are two rail tracks, the Konkan railway line North to South and the South Western railway line West to East. They cross at the most important junction of the state; the Madgaon railway station where every train running through Goa has a halt. Vasco da Gama is the other important railway station of Goa from where the South Western railway operates.
The South Western Railway track was constructed in the 19th century by the Portuguese. It links the port town of Vasco da Gama to Karnataka after passing through Madgaon and running east cutting through the Forest Mountains of the Western Ghats. At Karnataka it connects to the national railway network at the Londa junction from where one can catch trains to go to other parts of India like Bangalore, Hospet, Hyderabad and Kolhapur.
The daily Goa Express is the main train from Vasco that goes to New Delhi via Pune. Other trains that connect cities like Chennai, Bangalore and Vijayawada pass right over the Dudhsagar Waterfalls in the Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary and run two to three times a week.
