ECO freight train to be operational soon

LAHORE : Pakistan Railways is working on ECO train service for Turkey via Iran under the decisions of the Tehran conference held in March. PR sources told APP here on Sunday the ECO train was expected to be operational soon and it would be the beginning of a freight train service between the three countries in this corridor. The train operation was due in May but it had to be postponed due to a change of destination from Istanbul to Seki and increase in Wan Lake Ferri charges.
Pakistan, Iran and Turkey are already working to enhance the existing state of rail and road infrastructure connecting these countries, which would help reduce travel time for goods cargo across the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) region.
