    Railway maintenance has gone to the dogs. In the good old days the trains ran on time and all the rolling stock and tracks were well maintained. The stations were clean and well maintained. Total lack of discipline these days. No one seems to care the ministers do not use public transport, they travel at high speed in their bullet proof limousines disrupting all other road users, they dont give a anything about the travelers who use public transport.

    High time Puttlam track is double tracked as these trains have to wait for the Airport Express Train to Pass!

    Nothing seems to be on track., even the trains.

    Was it a Sabotage?

    So many derailments have happened in the recent past. There is definitely something wrong with the Railway department. It's priories have gone bonkers! And just imagine with these dilapidated tracks they are even considering going for electric trains!!!

    Yes, the tracks are really in bad shape. Take a ride in a second class carriage and have a look at the toilets. It shows how civilized we are.
