The Lahore Railway Station was built by the British colonists. It is representative of typical grand British architecture in the South Asia during the British Raj. The railway network established by the British was very extensive and is one of their lasting contributions to the culture and infrastructure of this region.
The railway station has 11 platforms (1 to 9, with 2 extra platforms, 3A and 6A). Platform No. 1 has got a special importance, as this platform is the destination of "Samjhota Express", the train service between Pakistan and India. The same train also leaves for India from the same platform.
The railway station has got all the facilities which a big station like it must possess. One can see few food stalls, book agencies, drink corners, etc on every platform. Some foreign restaurants (like McDonald's and Pizza Hut) have their branches at platform No. 2.
