More than 100 passengers have used the newly-introduced train journeys on the northern line, which began yesterday (11) from Kankesanthurai station to Murikandy station.
General Manager of Sri Lanka Railways, Dhammika Jayasundara, said the trains were introduced due to popular demand from commuters. As a result, the Railways Department launched four new trains.
Trains 4480 and 4882 run from Kankesanthurai to Murikandy, and Trains 4441 and 4443 run from Murikandy to Kankesanthurai.
He said that having more than 100 passengers is more than adequate for a start.
