Why can't they list the paisa in Dollar , rupee in billion makes the figure hard to visualize how much the cost is
I think the best option is to open the Factory for the Chinese company who do the maintenance work in Pakistan

And let them overhaul the engines together with Rasulpoor factory

At present, Pakistan Railways, on average, is operating 78 passenger and two freight trains daily.

According to a senior mechanical engineer of the railway, Chinese locomotives were included in the Pakistan Railways fleet during 2003-04. Like all other locomotives when introduced for the first time in Pakistan, they had teething troubles and some design defects.

“The very hot and dusty climatic conditions of Pakistan as well as operating conditions (broad gauge, operating and maintenance practices, etc.) are quite different from the countries that manufacture locomotives and these factors have generally been affecting the performance of the locomotives. These issues were experienced by Pakistan Railways on all classes of locomotives whenever they were inducted for the first time in the system,” said a senior officer while seeking anonymity because of some pending legal matters.

He further shared that there was no size problem pertaining to the Chinese locomotives but the Chinese passenger coaches, due to improper construction of platforms of a few railway stations, struck the platform edges. Railways modified the platform of all such stations and the problem was solved. The Chinese locomotives do have some issues, such as weak area of prime mover (diesel engine) but these have been addressed by the manufacturer.

Does it come with maintenance training? Or will "Pakistani Engineers/ Mechanics" use Used Oil?

If you get rid of the leaches in the Railways you'll free up alot of money.

If there any reason to have railways masters at every railway station when a train goes through the station once every 3 weeks?
