Curchorem railway station is a small railway station in South Goa district, Goa. The railway line from Marmagoa to londa passing through Curchorem. This railway station is also known as sanvordem chuch railway station. The station code is SVM. The station consists of 1 platforms. The platform is well sheltered. It lacks many facilities including water and sanitation.

This line was laid in 1880. A Catholic carpenter, Tome Caetano de Costa from aldona, Bardez, was entrusted with laying of the railway line and construction of Curchorem-Sanvordem railway station. One of the main contractors of the rail line from Marmagoa to Collem was Mr. Cosme Damiao Noronha and his subcontractor was Tome Caetano de Costa. Curchorem-Sanvordem was covered with thick forests and wild animals, so that people used to think that Sanvordem formed an outer limit of Goa. The Portuguese govt. asked the British govt. to start the railway line. This was the most difficult task as hills had to be cut down, tunnels dug and thick forest cleared.
