LAHORE: Pakistan Railways (PR) has suffered another blow as engineers have refused to run trains on two motor engines thus causing delays in the arrival and departure of trains.
According to reports, engineers have said that they should be provided with at least four motor engines and until this is done they will continue with their strike.
The strike has affected train arrival times and caused inconvenience to passengers.
According to the railway officials a number of trains are unable to arrive on time. Shah Ruken Alam Express which travels to Multan had to depart at 6:30 am, Awan Express at 8am and Super Express which travels to Sargodha at 9 am had been delayed.
PR officials further said that on the engineers’ protest, they were trying to provide ‘fit ‘engines for trains. Due to the delay in train arrivals, passengers are facing problems and delays of up to six hours have become the routine.
