Konkan Railway in the monsoons is an absolute delight to travel. This coastal railway along and through the western ghats provide 2 distinct landscapes for our viewing pleasure, Mangalore to Madgaon & Madgaon to Mumbai. However the tunnels, viaducts, bridges, greenery, rains, mountains and an enchanting experience is a common trait shared by both these sections. Seen here is our Pune bound Ernakulam – Pune (Poorna) Express, awaiting a crossing with the Madgaon – Mangalore intercity express at the picturesque Karwar. Seen ahead is T-80, Karwar Tunnel, 3 KM in length cutting through the western ghats.
