Experience a Rail Bus on Train Tracks in Sri Lanka Railways



Experience a rail bus journey on train tracks in Sri Lanka Railways. Unlike the normal train, traveling in a rail bus is… well both exciting and uncomfortable as it is too bumpy. Currently in Sri Lanka, only for two routes these buses are working. One from Anuradhapura to Madawachchiya and other one is from Maho Junction to Polgahawela Junction. These buses are donated from India to Sri Lanka as you can notice in the livery of rail bus.

Short Journey to Idalgashinna Railway Station from Bandarawela in Sri Lanka



Here we wait for the Colombo express train from Bandarawela railway station. It will go to Kandy and Colombo, which will take around 10 hours. The train is a Chinese DMU Class S12, which was imported 7 years ago.

You can see how people are eagerly waiting for the train, how railway station makes the arrival announcement in local language, how people simply enjoy the view, how they get down from the station and so on in this video.

It is nice to see how people in S.L like to take trains although the track seems shacking too much. They need to improve the track.
