Trains in Sri Lanka

The density of Railway stations in Sri Lanka is very sufficient as a result of former British engineering and planing.

But since then only very little has been done, although a better transportation system would be very beneficial in terms of environment protection and for the national oil bill.

So far upper and middle class Sri Lankans dread the trains and prefer small, but devastating mini busses that pollute the island at full speed as there is also no sufficient exhaust control in Sri Lanka.
