Ticket had an incorrect end of journey time on it. However the train arrived more or less on time and was a very comfortable finish to a good holiday.

The train trip itself was great. Seats confortable, air con carriage. The mark up on the tickets by 12go however is large. If you can be flexible, reccommend buying directly from the rail station. Much cheaper. We had purchased a trip from Ella to Kandy with the same company which they refunded due to being unable to confirm. We were lucky to turn up to the station the day of the train and secure 2nd class reserved, which for this trip is ideal as you can open the windows to take pictures of the amazing scenery. We had a driver to take us to the office to pick the tickets up- which was fortunate. Next time I probably wouldnt prebook and just buy at the station. 1st class, 2nd class reserved and 2nd class unreserved are all fine to travel in.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

One of the best advantages of travelling by train is that railway stations are often conveniently located within or very near major cities and urban areas. Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.

Lastly, unlike buses and other overland means of transport, trains are very rarely involved in accidents.
