Yes both ends are locomotives. This is running on upcountry line in Sri Lanka which has lots of steep curves and mountains. So the end locomotive is also pushing the train to proceed. Our Class S12 is also the same which was imported from China as well.

Class S5 719 Airport Express Luxury Train Service in Sri Lanka Railways



This is an airport express luxury train that used to operate for sometime. However, now it is not in the service anymore and I saw this accidentally that day. I believe it is just a special train.

Next step is to upgrade the tracks for 120km/h at least.

You see the people crossing the line early in the video? That's super dangerous as-is. Plus having large animals including cows or in places elephants that can also cross. Really need to have grade separation/fencing along the lines at those speeds.

Yes, we need to do that desperately. Unfortunately, I don't think it will happen anytime soon.

We even had an accident last week due to our weak tracks.

Yeah, I am totally agreeing with this. We need to implement new rules and safety methods. Just bringing new trains is not enough.

You can have automated/maned cross. elephants are the problems. they cannot be controlled even with fencing.

East coast means Batticaloa and Trincomalee. These lines are still old though. The only new line we recently made is from Matara to Beliatta. That one is pretty good but its only about 26.75km-long. I'll post a video of this track later.

Yeah, it is inevitable to control elephants unless we make undergrounds or bridges for them like in Europe. Many elephants were killed in this year.
