This was due on me since last July!
My friend Umair went to Faisalabad with his family in July last year on train and I asked him to share some snaps of the trip with me, so that I can post them up on my blog. He did shared snaps with me and I was meant to write a post about it on my blog but I didn’t.
I take full responsibilty for this delay but on the other hand, I do think it’s never too late!
So here I present to you snaps of Umair’s train trip, from Karachi to Faisalabad:
As soon as your train reaches the outskirts of Karachi, you will see vast lands like these.
With some villages like these on both sides of the track.
A wind power electric plant near Jhimpir, District Thatta.
A look on the empty track. This one will get you back to Karachi.
Monsoon clouds covering the sunset.
Pull this and you will be fine with Rs 2000/- (USD 18.08)
Train made a stop at Rohri Junction Railway Station, which serves as a stop of all express trains from Karachi.
Distance between Karachi and Rohri.
Business Class corridor of the train.
As per Umair, his ansestral agricultural lands are located from this point.
And now, some views of Punjab’s agricultural lands:
Last but not least, Umair also sent me snaps of his favorite medium for long distance transportation, trains:
This is ZCU 30 6317, a 48 feet powerhouse on wheels.
A look at Karakoram Express, one of Pakistan Railways most busiest express trains.
These 4000 horsepower GE 9000 series engines are now in full service.
This marks the end of our little train trip to Faisalabad from Karachi. I’m very much thankful to my friend Umair for sharing the beauty of Pakistan’s majestic lands with me and I’m also sorry for sharing them on my blog this late. I hope he will not mind about it 🙂
