PESHAWAR: The tourism department and Pakistan Railways have agreed on the early revival of the historic Khyber Steam Safari train service to boost tourism in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The British-era train, a major tourist attraction in the region, was closed down in 2008 due to militancy and the flashfloods, which washed away railway tracks.

KP senior minister for sports and tourism Mohammad Atif Khan told Dawn that his department was in contact with the Pakistan Railways, Pakistan Army and Frontier Corps for the resumption of the historic train service and opening of the historic forts along railway tracks for tourists.
