Everything about Goa!Goa Railway Stations
You'll not find a railway station with name Goa! Rather, the main two railway stations in Goa are Vasco da Gama (Code:VSG) and Madgaon (Code:MAO).
Vasco da Gama is a terminus, located very close to the Dabilm Airport (Goa Airport) and the port. Most of the long distance trains to Goa that end/stats at Goa operate from Vasco da Gama railway station
Madgaon (also called Margao) railway station is about 30km south of Vasco da Gama. A great deal of the north-south express trains (in the Konkan Railway route) pass via Madgaon. A large number of express trains to Goa pass via Madgaon, more than those makes it to Vasco da Gama.
Search for trains to Madgaon rather than Vasco da Gama, if you are exploring for all the possible trains to Goa. Every train that goes to Vasco da Gama, passes via Madgaon Railway station anyways.
Apart from Madgaon and Vasco da Gama railway stations, Goa has a number of smaller railway stations. Some of the express trains halts at a few of these smaller stations too. Otherwise these are railway stations for the local passenger trains.
