No Next stop... the know it all union striking that the trains are not good, Even though these trains be it Indian/Chinese have been running quite well in these countries. The only trains that would work on SL lines are the much advanced American, Canadian British /western trains. As The Union is of the opinion that going for training in the Western developed countries is much better than India or China!!!!
