Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Pakistan Railways on Friday started its third freight train, as accelerating the freight operations is inevitable for the revenue generation. Steps have been taken to comply with the Minister's directive, resultantly the number of freight trains has been increased from two to three.

It may be noted here that the two freight trains, already functioning, were being engaged in Oil Operations for PSO, whereas the third freight train has been started for the purpose of goods' supply across the different places. Transportation of PSO Oil between Karachi and Lal peer has been done, using Pakistan Railways cargo trains for quite some time.

To enhance the freight operations of Pakistan Railways, the number of locomotives, used for the said purpose, has also been extended from 09 to 24. It may be learnt here that this enhancement is rendered by the repair and maintenance of the defective locomotives, a very positive sign for discovering the latent potential of Railways, which is evident from the very fact that the institution earned a hefty sum of 14 million from its freight operations in one day only.-PR
