Pakistan & India, 1993/1994
This gallery contains photographs of trains in Pakistan and India over the New Year period of 1993 - 1994.
The photographs were taken on an Enthusiast Holidays tour, organised and led by Vic Allen.
In Pakistan the tour group was accommodated in two carriages, a sleeping car and a dining car, which were attached to service trains to move around the country. These were then detached and stabled at the stations where we were to photograph the remaining steam trains. This was very convenient, especially for getting early morning photographs.
Kotri Junction and Mirpur Khas are in the south.
Samasata is east of centre, just south of Bahawalpur.
Malakwal is in the north, just north of Sargodha, and the Khyber Pass is in the north-west, west from Peshawar.
The tour group’s two carriages used for travel and accommodation in Pakistan were left at Lahore. After crossing the border into India normal service trains were used for travel, with overnight accommodation, if not in sleeper carriages while travelling, then in hotels.
