Gillani Railway Station (Urdu: گیلانی ریلوے اسٹیشن‎) is an abandoned railway station on Karachi Circular Railway loop line in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi, Pakistan. In the past, Pakistan Railways had a plan to establish a central railway station for Karachi there. For a while it was the terminus station of Tezrao and was a stop for the Chenab Express when it was running via the KCR loop for few years in the 1990s.[2]

Possible re-opening[edit]

The station might re-open if a planned re-opening of the KCR loop as a rapid transit scheme goes ahead.
