Karachi-Peshawar train service resumes

Pakistan Railways resumed its train service after five weeks when Rahman Baba Express left from Karachi for Peshawar on Sunday.

A total of fifteen-hundred passengers are on board the Rehman Baba Express.

The decision to gradual restoration of the train service was taken at a meeting chaired by Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique after reviewing reports on receding floodwaters from tracks and necessary repairs.

The service had been discontinued due to the devastation caused by monsoon rains and flash floods in recent months.
