Pakistan Railways provides


an

important

mode

of

Transportation to the farthest


corners of the country and
bring

them

Business,

closer

sight

for

seeing,

pilgrimage and education. It has been a great integrating force and


forms the life line of the country by catering to its needs for large
scale

movement

of

passenger

and

freight.

The possibility of Karachi as a sea port was first noticed in the mid
of 19th century and

Sir Henry Edward Frere who was appointed

Commissioner of Sind after its annexation with Bombay in 1847


sought permission from Lord Dalhousie to begin survey of sea
port. He also initiated the survey for Railway line in 1858. It was
proposed that a railway line from Karachi City to Kotri, steam
navigation up the river Indus and river Chenab upto Multan and
from there a railway line to Lahore and beyond be constructed.

It was on 13th May, 1861 that first railway line was opened for
public traffic between Karachi City and Kotri, the distance of
105 miles. The line between Karachi City and Keamari was
opened on 16.6.1889. By 1897 the line from the sea port at
Keamari

to

Kotri

was

doubled.

PAKISTAN RAILWAY ACADEMY

The railway line from Peshawar to Karachi closely follows


Alexanders line of March through the Hindu Kush mountain range
in the north to the sea port in the south. Different sections on
existing main line from Peshawar to Lahore and Multan and
branch lines were constructed in the last quarter of 19th century
and

early

years

of

20th

century.

The 4 sections i.e.Scinde (Sindh) railways, Indian Flotilla Company


Punjab railway and Delhi railways working in a single company
were later on amalgamated into Scinde, Punjab & Delhi Railways
Company and were purchased by the Secretary of State for India
in 1885 and in January, 1886 it was named North Western State
Railways which was later on renamed as North Western Railways.
After the independence of Pakistan, as a sovereign country, this
was

finally

named

as

Pakistan

Railways.

At the time of partition, North Western Railways 1847 route mile


was transferred to India leaving route miles of 5048 km to
Pakistan. In 1954 the railway line was extended to Mardan and
Charsada section and in 1956 Jacobabad-Kashmore 2-6 line was
converted

into

broad

gauge.

Kot-Adu-Kashmore

line

was

constructed between 1969 to 1973 providing an alternate route


from Karachi to up country. In 2006 the meter guage section of
140 km from Mirpurkhas

(Sindh), to the Indian border at

Khokhropar was converted to broad gauge.

INTRODUCTION

The Pakistan Railway Academy originated as the


Walton Training School of the legendary North Western
Railway and in 1929, the small training school
established in 1925 was named after Col. C.E. Walton,
the Agent (as the General Manager was then known) of
the North Western Railways. In no time, the Walton
Training School became the hub of Lahore and came to
acquire its name as WALTON.
As its field transformed into lush green lawns and the saplings spread
out their thickening branches, the Walton Training School took on the
character and repute of its parent organization, the North Western Railway,
which came to symbolize the best traditions of service, innovation,
development, and organizational excellence. The performance standards of
this institution received international acclaim when in 1954, its premises were
selected by ESCFE, (Economic Commission for Asia & Far East) a United
Nations agency, to establish their Regional Railway Training Center for
Training Railway officers and senior supervisors of Asia and the Far East in
Signaling and Advanced Railway Operations. Control of the Center was
transferred to the Government of Pakistan in January 1958. Renamed in July,
1982 as the Pakistan Inter-Regional Railway Training College, it was merged
with the Research & Development Centre, the new-born Institute of Railway
Management and the Walton Training School in May, 1983 in the latters
premises to establish the Directorate of Research and Training. The
Directorate of Research and Training was re-named as the Pakistan Railway
Academy in July, 2000.
