Frseeeeeeeeeeeefronnng   — train sounds “The Great Railway Bazaar”, Paul Theroux.

Have you ever travelled by train in Pakistan? The Great Railways is a travel project where my colleague Madiha Aijaz, designated photographer and fellow traveler and I will be embarking on a train journey through Pakistan.

The Great Railways is a travel reporting project where my colleague and I will be stopping at stations, visiting towns, meeting people, taking the famous routes and trains and looking into the state of train travel in Pakistan. You can join us on our trip by tweeting us your questions via @pakistannie

Following are a series of posts about destinations, trains and sites we will be visiting on our trip. Share with us your travel experience, we can use travel tips and things you want to see and hear about from us, while we’re on the road. All updates will be posted in the section The Great Railways on my website
