As the nation is all set to celebrate the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi 2019, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal-led Indian Railways has decided to run special trains services in a bid to clear the extra rush of passengers during Ganesh Chaturthi.
Western Railways has assigned special trains that will run during Ganesh Chaturthi between Mumbai Central/Ahmedabad Vadodara Junction and Thivim/Sawantwadi Road to clear extra rush of passengers during the festival.
These special trains will mostly cater to the Konkan coasts spanning across Maharashtra and Goa. The focus seems to be to connect all points of the Konkan coast with each other. Ganesh Chaturthi 2019 is a Hindu festival celebrating the birth of Ganesha.
List of special trains for Ganesh Chaturthi 2019 festival this year:
1) Train No. 09007 Mumbai Central Thivim (Bi-Weekly) Special on special fare will leave from Mumbai Central at 23.55 hrs on August 29, September 2, September 5, and September 12 (Thursday and Monday). The train will reach Thivim at 16:00 hrs the next day. Read More
