Delayed trains irk passengers

Passengers have been facing trouble owing to delay in all trains travelling between Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Peshawar and Quetta in the aftermath of two train accidents recently.

According to Railway officials, the Karachi express facing delay of 8 hours, Tezgam express will leave from Karachi Cantt after 4 hours delay, Hazara Express 2 hours, Karakoram express 7 hours, Sir Syed express 2 hours and Shah Hussain express will leave after 5 hours.

At least 24 people were dead and several injured following a collision between Quetta bound Akbar Express and a freight train at Walhar Railway Station on July 11.

The Rawalpindi-Karachi Pakistan Express narrowly escaped an accident at Dinga Phatak in Faisalabad on Saturday.

According to media reports, five bogies of the train got detached, but fortunately did not derail. The passengers were still waiting for help at the track at the time of filing of this report.

It seems that the authorities have not taken any proper step to improve the railway issues despite the deadly Rahim Yar Khan trains incident that killed 24 people.
