The history of Pakistan Railway is incomplete without the mention of steam power. Since 1947 for well over 50 years Pakistan Railways plied these powerful iron horses on freight as well as passenger services. SP/S , HG/S , CWD , XC , meter and narrow gage steam locomotives were widely used. The steam gallery is a collection of steam locomotive pictures which were working while the photographs were taken.

Currently HG/S Class  is utilized for occasional safari trips in the Rawalpindi and Lahore Divisions.More....

It is so unfortunate that Pakistan Railways which has a very rich heritage was not able to preserve it for future generations as a source of research and education. PRHS which is now renamed as pakistanrail.com approached Pakistan Railways in 1998 with a suggestion to preserve the grounded steam locomotives of SP/S, HG/S , CWD Class. Initially the locomotives were placed at main railway stations of the 7 Divisions of Pakistan Railways. Later on a Railway Museum was established at Golra Railway Station in the Rawalpindi Division.

Due to the sluggishness of PR management only about 30% of PR heritage could be preserved.

Pakistanrail.com took up the challenge of building locomotive and rolling stock models that are and were in use of PR. Due to paucity of space it was decided to scale down the models to 1:20 and 1:40. These models provide the railfans a 3D aspect of the actual object. Alco, Alsthom, emd, Henscell, GE, Hitachi, Dahlian Ziyang etc are in the pipe line....More...
