“The train will help tourists to come to Goa in more numbers and in a more comfortable way. I am glad that the train, which will bring the tourists over to Goa, is in itself a novelty being the first fully air-conditioned double-decker train of its kind in India,” Parsekar said. The double-decker train has eight compartments with a seating capacity of 120 in each compartment and will cover the distance between Madgaon and LTT in around 12 hours.
