All trains scheduled on the coastal line had been announced delayed, causing difficulties to the commuters following a derailment of a train at the Fort Railway Station early today, Railway Control Room said.

This was the second incident today. The first one a train derailed from tracks in Maradana this morning.

Railway stations, including Colombo Fort and Kollupitiya were seen crowded with the office hour commuters in the evening. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    Millions of US Dollars was spent for the Sri Lanka Railway network. They was no improvement at all. The frequency of trains are still the less that what was there in the 60s. Some of the rolling stock imported from India recently is almost at the end of its life. What a waste of public funds. It was all %%%% in the pretext of development.
