LAHORE: Pakistan Railways has decided to discontinue the Shalimar Express. According to railway sources, this decision is attributed to financial losses.

According to these sources, the administration has opted to cease the train service due to the lack of revenue, with the Shalimar Express incurring a daily loss of 20 lakh rupees.
