    The Karachi-Lahore (and vice versa) Economy fare is not 1200 but it is 1500.

    I traveled via Night Coach on 10th February from Karachi to Lahore in Economy class. The window of our cabin was not closing and despite of repeated calls to management, they didn't do anything about it. It was very freezing night because of the malfunctioned window. However, It reached Lahore at 11:55 AM (5 minutes before). There were so many people traveling on open tickets making it too much crowdy. Its management should only allow seat by seat traveling.

    I had to return back to Karachi this Thursday (21st February). I reached Lahore station at around 5:30 PM but train wasn't there. The support counter people told that its late by half hour. Then they continued adding up half hour until it was 8:30 PM. The train didn't come yet so I cancelled my ticket. Now I will be traveling back to Karachi on 25th via Pak Business Express (Smart package 3000 Rs).

    In private sector, Shalimar Express has a stop at Rahim Yar Khan. It leaves Karachi at 6 AM and reach RYK at 2:45 PM. They have AC-Lower and AC-Parlor classes.

    In public sector, following trains have stop at RYK:
    Khyber Mail (Khi: 10 PM, RYK: 8 AM), 2nd priority in public sector
    Awam Express (Khi: 7 AM, RYK: 6 PM), NOT Recommended
    Tezgam (Khi: 5:30 PM, RYK: 12 AM), 1st priority in public sector
    Allama Iqbal (Khi: 2 PM, RYK: 11:45 PM), NON-AC
    Hazara Express (Khi: 6:15 AM, RYK: 4:35 PM), NON-AC
    Pakistan Express (Khi: 1 PM, RYK: 10:15 PM), NON-AC
    Zikria Express (Khi: 7 PM, RYK: 5:20 AM), NON-AC

    Apart from trains, another option is to catch Daewoo Bus for Karachi to Rahim Yar Khan.

    Dont you worry bro. I was also facing the similiar situation as you are in since two years from now. Never stepped outside Karachi in my whole life. Then Allah blessed me with a very good job in Islamabad. And since then I have seen almost all of the Pakistan in just two years cuz my job demand some travelling to all major cities of Pakistan.

    You will have your opportunity Inshallah!

    Bro, Night coach express only operates between Lahore and Karachi. If you want to travel from Peshawar to Rahim Yar Khan, the best train for you would be Khyber Mail.

    Default night coach booking office in Islamabad , timings, and current fares

    Hello everyone, I was googling for this information and came across this thread. I am planning to travel from Lahore to Rohri during last week of November 2014. Can you recommend what train should I be travelling in? I need a less crowded train. I think I like Night Coach but is there any other train that leaves late at night and arrives during AM at Rohri? Plus where should I be able to buy tickets in Islamabad? And what are the current fares if I were to book whole sleeper room?
