The official said the first non-stop rail car had departed from Lahore at 7:30 pm to Rawalpindi while the second train will leave from Lahore at 5 am to Rawalpindi.

He said both the up and down trains had comprised two AC business class, two AC standard class, five economy class and one power van while the second train had to stopovers at Gujranwala and Jhelum.

The special rail cars between Lahore-Rawalpindi had received overwhelming response from thousands of passengers between the routes and they expressed their gratitude to Pakistan Railways for facilitating them, he added.

To a question, he said Pakistan Railways were also planning to upgrade five major railway stations across the country on modern lines to facilitate the passengers.
