Pakistan Receives First Batch of High-Speed Rail Coaches from China

46 new high-speed railway coaches being imported from China arrived at the Karachi port on Sunday.

Sources said the consignment included 45 coaches and one brake van.

They further said Pakistan Railways had received the first consignment of 46 out of 230 coaches booked under an agreement.

Sources further said the new coaches would be added to the existing fleet of the Pakistan Railways to facilitate passengers.
