Business Express - A luxury train for people who mean 'Business' in Pakistan

Pakistan Railway has recently started a posh and lavish exclusive train for the businessmen between Lahore and Karachi. The thirteen-carriage train will ply over a distance of 1,200 kilometers in 18 hours - as compared to usual 30 hours journey. The train will provide a workable and budgetary solution to businessmen frequenting the two cities regularly in comfort and luxury.

For 5,000 rupees one way ($55), or 9,000 rupees return, passengers are waited on by a bevy of attentive stewards, as they settle down to watch films on flat-screen TVs or power up laptops.

Afternoon tea and piping hot dinner – courtesy of chefs at five-star hotels are borne into cabins. Then as night falls, stewards come round with crisp bed linen to turn slightly hard green bunks into inviting beds.
