After owing the independence, the railway tracks remain unchanged even for today. The main line which is known as Upcountry line is undoubtedly the most fascinating and famous line not only in Sri Lanka but also in the whole world.

Those travel three times a day and one famous night mail which is hauled by two German-made diesel locomotives.
