A train carrying fuel from Navalapitiya to Kotagala had derailed between the railway stations of Galabada and Watawala this morning obstructing the upcountry railway line.
A fuel leak had been reported in the fuel tank that derailed carrying 5,800 litres of diesel.
The officials of the Railway Department said the trains travelling from Badulla will be limited to Hatton Railway Station while trains from Colombo will be limited to Nawalapitiya Railway Station. (Ranjith Rajapaksha)
A new development is being observed in a regular derailment on the up country lines, something fishy here.

Trains to upcountry is running at very slow, even though once in a week trains derails. Is it a sabotage to gain some advantage or the railway dept. became inefficient to run smooth service to upcountry. Need to investigate.
