Nuwara Eliya to Bandarawela by train

A wonderful train ride through the tea plantations starts, as with most train journeys, a little bit late.

So when the train is late one goes to the local hostelry for refreshments.

Clientele a bit iffy especially these characters.

The train eventually arrives, over crowded due to new celebrations. Thankfully a few able to get off to allow a bit of space for those getting on. This is most effective method to get your family off.

I’ve always wanted to hang out the open door on one of these crowded local trains. I sat on the doorway and watched the plantations & small stations roll by while chaos ensued behind me.

We arrive at our destination and spoon ourselves onto the platform.
