If you're going to Goa for some monsoon fun, do be aware that the Konkan Railway's Monsoon Timetable will be in operation from June 10 to October 31, 2012.

The departure times of some trains on the Mumbai-Goa route have been adjusted to allow for the necessary slower speeds of the trains during the monsoon season. Many parts of the track -- such as those with rock cuttings -- become unstable during the monsoon. This means that trains must reduce their speed for safety reasons.

While most trains will depart an hour or two earlier, some will depart a bit later. Also note that landslides are known to occur along the route, and cause services to be suspended for extended periods.

Further details are available from the Konkan Railway website.
