Tickets were delivered to hotel as arranged. The only issues were that our reserved seats were facing backwards in the direction of travel and that we did not have a window, even after booking months in advance.

Hi, we enjoyed a lot in the charismatic interiors of the carriage. Just two issues : More than tea/coffee, at least few snacks as complimentary shoule be served. The carriage was jerking quite a lot, as the train picked up high speeds.

Partially really nice views! Plenty of place on the 2nd class. Train was on time. We were sitting backwards which made me travel sick a bit and we only had a partial window on our spot. Not too many touts or vendors a plus! There was a violental incident in the train and it had to stop along the way and the violent person had to leave the train.

Great experience - the carriage was excellent. We appreciated the complementary cup of tea too! Slight confusion when arriving at the station as to whether we needed paper tickets, so maybe this could be improved.

Excellent! everything was very smooth. We exchanged a couple of emails and just before departure received an email from 12go explaining everything. It was very good to know that there would be a 12go representative at the station. The ViceRoyII was an amazing experience, I do not regret at all the extra that we had to pay for it. The staff was very nice and helpful with my 1 year boy that also loved the expereince. Highly recommended

train #1029 First Class seat, Sri Lanka Railways, Dec 25, 2018
Picking up tickets: We went directly from the airport in Negombo to pick up our tickets (by taxi) on the 24th of December, and the office was open. Which was great. The office is about 7 kilometers from the train station, but we had already figured that out, and asked the taxi to drive us to both stops. The taxi cost us 3000 rupees, and a bus ride would probably have cost us a total of 500 rupees (for two people). But the time we saved, and the comfort of the taxi ride compared to taking the bus (which according to the driver did not go on that day - Christmas) was money well spent. Train ride: We had first class tickets. At first, we did not find the first class carriage, since we got on the train before they had attached the first class carriage to the train. So we ended up sitting in second class, until the train ticket collector told us where to go. First class has air con and the ride was nice with great views. Overall we had a good experience.

Very poor service at Stef Lanka in Colombo. Waited for office to open in the morning for over half an hour before we gave up! So we tried calling the hotline 20 times during the day but no reply. Some Hotline! Finally made a second visit late afternoon with success. Train to Kandy very bumpy aircon carriage was ok
