Karachi Circular Railway: First train late by 30 minutes

KARACHI – The first train of newly re-launched Karachi Circular Railway service reached 30 minutes late on Friday.

The railway authorities inaugurated the project on Thursday by declaring the local train as KCR. However, the practical result is that the first train was late even on the half route.

As per the passengers, facilities provided in the train on the main track are very good but only on-time service is the basic thing which eases the daily commuters.
