Backgrounder:

The Konkan Railway is a subsidiary zone of the Indian Railways. It is one of the 17 zones of the Indian Railways but without any divisional structure unlike other railways zones in India.  It is operated by Kokan Railway Corporation, headquartered at CBD Belapur in Navi Mumbai Maharashtra.The first passenger train ran on Konkan railway tracks on 20 March 1993 between Udupi and Maguluru. During its initial years of operation in the mountainous Konkan region, a spate of accidents prompted Konkan Railway to investigate new technologies. The anti-collision devices, the Sky Bus and RORO are a few of the innovations from Konkan Railway. It was the missing link between  Mumbai, Maharashtra and Mangluru, Karnataka and further to the south western coastal cities of India. The 741 km (461 mi) line connects  Maharshatra, Goa and  Karnataka States in India. The first train on the completed track was flagged off on January 26, 1998, the Republic Day of India.
