    Ministers are all the time figuring out new way of squandering public funds on thamashas.

    Looks like they celebrated this trip with foreigners, which is very nice but there is hardly a Sri Lankan in sight on the train...

    We must exploit these rare facilities to the benefit of us and tourists. Not many countries can boast of these and who have them look after with tender care.

    This is great... Government should protect and maintain these trains, it would help to attract more tourists...
