The death toll from the train accident in a remote part of southern Sindh province has risen to 63, Pakistan Railways officials said on Tuesday.
The Railways issued two lists of the dead that included 12 unidentified people from the accident.
The accident took place early on Monday after a Millat Express train with around 600 passengers aboard - headed from Karachi to Sargodha - derailed and shifted to the "down track".
Just minutes later, the Sir Syed Express, coming from the opposite direction from Rawalpindi, ploughed into the derailed train at speed, slicing through metal carriages like a tin opener.
