Derailment disrupts trains to north Featured

A derailment last night (14) will affect train operations on the northern line for around two days, according to the Department of Railways.

Rajarata Regina on its way from Galle to Vavuniya derailed between Parasangaswewa and Medavachchiya around 8.30 pm, damaging five compartments.

Repairing the damaged track started immediately and that is expected to take around two days.

Presently, train passengers are being taken by bus from Medawachchiya to Anuradhapura, causing buses to be overcrowded since this morning.
