    I see the Kelani Valley train everyday near the Golf Course where I live.. The head lamp in the Engine is like a motorcycle light so damn WEAK.. Extremely dangerous... How can the Train Drivers see at night.. especially in a place like Welikanda.. Why cant they install some Super Bright LED high tech lights all around the train where animals can at least spot the train coming.......

    These train drivers are vicious evil people. I have no idea why they are not thrown in prison for these heinous crimes they continue to commit with no punishment against the elephants.

    Those innocent animals were not in any suicide attempt. They were KILLED by SRL by not taking ANY collision avoiding measures neither on the path nor in the train. Negligence of innocent lives has become very common today..
