    The train is ok. The staff of bookaway went above and beyond to ensure we collected our tickets and boarded our train in relative calm. We suffered a train stoppage on the way to Colombo. The staff were in contact met us on arrival with boarding passes for the link to Kandi and showed us to the platform and the site for the only first class carriage. The carriage formations can be difficult to navigate.
