"We welcome it. We are hopeful that the Railway Ministry will give special attention to the urgent need for up-gradation of railway stations and improve facilities, cleanliness and hygiene as Goa is a tourism destination," Ajgaonkar said in a statement issued in Panaji.

The 19-coach fully air-conditioned train has LED TVs, tea and coffee vending machines, catering service, bio-vacuum toilets and GPS based passenger information display screens, among other facilities.

The train will run on the Mumbai-Goa route five days a week — Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday — during the non-monsoon period.

During the monsoon — between 10 June and 31 October — it will operate thrice a week — Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
