Railway Station

Traveling by train through the island is a great and cheap way, if you have time… You feel like in the US at Wild Wild West period, leaning through the window, getting down for a while to buy a beedee cigarette or water bottle when train stop in the coco fields for no reason, talking with neighbours in 3 Rd class compartment, smelling all flavours from the open window. From Matara you can go to Colombo, Kandy in the mountains within 3 hours of a pure delight journey. Our railway station is working like 70 years ago, same way to control, sell and help passengers to find their way. Here people say to westerners “you have watches but we have the time “… #meansoftransportofmydistrikt
