Pakistan Railways had been facing serious crisis during the tenure of last government and many trains were closed due to this crisis. At that time, Pakistan Railways not had sufficient balance to purchase the fuel, even after increasing ticket prices. After the formation of new government in Pakistan, as a result of General Elections 2013, the government had decided to bring many changes in Pakistan Railways, in order to redevelop it once again. In this regards, the government had chosen Khawaja SaadRafique as Railway Minister and given him a task to develop Pakistan Railways.
From the last 2 years, Pakistan Railways is continuously growing and many new trains have been introduced to provide better services to the travelers. Prices of tickets have been also decreased and the services of Pakistan Railways have been made better for the travelers. Railway stations of different cities have been also maintained, which are now much better than they were before. Only reason behind the restoration of Pakistan Railways is the dedication of Railway Minister and the whole team of Pakistan Railways.
Like other newly introduced trains by Pakistan Railways, Pakistan Green Line Train is also a successful experience. Being a traveler of Pakistan Green Line Train, we have great experience of travelling and found that the services provided in this train are excellent. Generally, trains in Pakistan had a problem of timings and people thinks that it is not possible that trains arrived at the designated station on time. But Pakistan Green Line Train has totally changed this general concept and it not only reached at designated stations on time, but sometimes arrived before the arrival time.
Although ticket price of this train is higher than the fares of other trains, but as an executive class train, services provided in this train are unmatchable. Pakistan Green Line Train provides facilities of comfortable sleepers, WiFi, 3 quality meals, tea, bottled water, newspapers, standard bedding, air conditioned rooms and others as well. Cleaning system in Pakistan Railways is one of the basic problems, but cleaning system in Pakistan Green Line Train is also very good.
The experience of Pakistan Green Line Train is successful so far and Pakistan Railways should also introduce new trains with more facilities, on order to make journey more comfortable.
