Pakistan Railways reached a remarkable milestone by successfully operating its longest freight train in history, announced a spokesperson on Friday. Spanning an impressive 2,500 feet, the train comprised 50 wagons, powered by an exceptionally robust engine.

Loaded with a substantial cargo weighing over 3000 tons, the freight train embarked on its journey from Karachi to Kotri, marking a significant feat in railway logistics. Throughout its expedition, the train attained a maximum speed of 60 kilometers per hour, maintaining an average speed of 38 kilometers per hour.
