PR gets 20 more Chinese locomotives

KARACHI: Pakistan Railway (PR) got 20 more new locomotives imported from China. The engines were unloaded at Karachi Port Keamari and they would reach at the Railway Diesel Workshop Karachi Cantonment Stationon Saturday, from where they would be formally commissioned in the PR engine fleet. Before these 20 locomotives, PR has already obtained 19 Chinese locomotives. By the year-end a total of 58 Chinese locomotives were scheduled to reach Karachi, augmenting the railway services throughout Pakistan. The workers and officials of the PR welcoming the arrival of new locomotives hoped they would be used to haul goods trains and also to get much needed revenue for the cash strapped railways. Chairman PR Workers Union Manzoor Razi said the new engines would open a new chapter of progress and economic sustainability for PR and help in bettering the service delivery to passengers.
