Samasata locomotive shed, Pakistan, 20/12/1993
Photographs at Samasata locomotive shed, north east of Karachi. The track is broad gauge, 5ft 6ins (1,676mm), and this area was known for its use of the CWD class 2-8-2 locomotives.
The tour group’s railway carriages were attached to an “express” train to travel north through Pakistan. During a lengthy stop by this train at Samasata the opportunity was taken for a hasty visit to the locomotive shed.
