Pakistan Railways Announces to Revive ‘Safari Tourist Train’ in Potohar Region to Promote Tourism

Pakistan Railways has announced the revival of the ‘Safari Tourist Train’, an exciting initiative aimed at showcasing the cultural and scenic beauty of the Potohar Region.

The journey will commence from Golra Station in Islamabad, a location steeped in British-era history and home to the Islamabad Railway Museum.

This museum boasts a fascinating collection of railway artifacts, including ancient steam engines and heritage railway kitchens, offering visitors a glimpse into the rich history of the railway in the region.

From Golra Station, the Safari Train will embark on a picturesque journey, passing through several significant railway stations such as Hasan Abdal, Attock, and Attock Khurd. Notably, Attock Khurd stands out as it houses the oldest railway museum, adding an extra layer of historical significance to the trip. This museum is likely to provide passengers with valuable insights into the evolution of the railway system over time.

The primary objective of this tourist train initiative is to promote tourism in the region and introduce travelers to the cultural and historical heritage associated with the railway.

By offering passengers a unique and immersive experience, the Safari Train aims to play a significant role in boosting tourism and fostering appreciation for the railway’s contribution to the area’s development.

During the journey, passengers will have the opportunity to witness breathtaking scenery as the Safari Train crosses the old iron girder bridge over the Indus River. This iconic bridge serves as a vital link between the provinces of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, adding an element of adventure and exploration to the overall experience.

The revival of the Safari Tourist Train promises to be an exciting venture, combining historical exploration with scenic beauty to create a memorable journey for passengers.

Through this initiative, Pakistan Railways seeks to not only promote tourism but also celebrate the rich heritage of the railway system in the Potohar Region.
