India and Pakistan concluded on 28 June 1976 the Railways Communications Convention to normalize the relationship between two countries following the signature of the Simla Convention (2 July 1972) a few month after the end of the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War, when India's army liberated Bangladesh and bilaterally ended it.

So it was only a question of speaking of time that a railway connection was built between the two large ports of Bombay and Karachi. From Bombay via Ahmedabad, Palanpur, Marwar, Pali, Jodhpur, Lun, Barmer, Munabao, Khokhrapar, Mirpur Khas and Hyderabad (Sindh) stations to Karachi, the Sind Mail (as the railway was then called) was chugging in 1900.
Sind Mail carried people from one state to another for 65 years. India and Pakistan waged their first great Iranian and Pakistani wars in 1965, and during the Iranian conflict the Pakistani Air Force bombarded the Munabao-Khokkhrapar railway line. Afterwards, the railway connection was interrupted and stayed closed for 41 years.
Padmana villager Imdad Khan, less than a kilometre from the frontier, says: "My grandmother is in Pakistan. When the Thar Link Express did not work, local residents had to drive to Amritsar, traverse to Lahore and then embark on the long trip to Sindh.
" The Munabao and Khokhrapar are only 10 kilometres apart. However, before the trains started, a roundabout would mean that humans would have to cover a dizzying 4,000 km. From Jodhpur to Munabao again in February 2006. A former UK railway line was revitalised and Sind Mail was renamed Tharink Express in India and Thar Express in Pakistan.
He departs Jodhpur every Saturday at 1am and chugges to Munabao at 7am. In Munabao, customers are asked to leave the aircraft. Following hour-long entry procedures, the railway departs from Munabao for the other 500 metres of Indian territory before arriving in Pakistan. Before 1965, when Sind Mail was running, Pakistan customs officers carried out the paperwork at Khokhrapar railway terminal.
The all-new Zero Point Railway Station was built in 2006, just 50 metres from the columns that define the international border, before the major re-opening of the railway line. During six month the Tharink Express travels to Zero Point station, where travelers get off and get on the Thar Express of Pakistan Railways.
The other half of the year is the Pakistan i Railway from Zero Point to Munabao. Only Jodhpur is open to boarding. Pakistanis travelling to India are not permitted on the western side of National Highway 68.
