I've been here for most of my life and I find no parallel to it. I miss morning walks.... hanging around with friends.... playing around.

This calm place is covered with railway related artifacts that... 更多

It's an outdoor museum and requires a little bit of walking around. The most extraordinary was an old bench still intact from the 1800s... 更多

On a small railway station in Islamabad, this classic museum highlights the history of Pakistan railways. Time well spent.
