The Konkan Railways is a delight to travel by, especially if you have the time and want to enjoy some breathtaking scenery on the region. The line connects the three states of Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka, several trains connect important cities in these states. Here is the video which will give you a feel of this experience:

For the Mumbai-Goa route, you can try the following trains:

Konkan Kanya Express (departing from Mumbai CST at 11:05 PM)
Jan Shatabdi Express (departing from Mumbai CST at 5:10 AM)
Mandovi Express (departing from Mumbai CST at 6:55 AM)
Matsyagandha Express (departing from Mumbai Lokmanya Tilak Station at 3:10 PM)

For more trains, give our Train Search a spin.

Try the trains in the morning to get a clear view of the surreal, lush greenery outside. Also try taking the Non-AC chair car and coaches so that the beautiful view is not blocked by tinted glasses. You'll be going through tunnels that are almost 6 km long and take about 3 minutes to cross. With hills and valleys and small streams in store, the train journey to Goa along the Konkan Railway route can be quite a memorable one.
