Having arrived in plenty of time 

for the train to Galle a few minutes before it was due we were informed to change platforms. Arriving as the train pulled in we were greeted with huge smiles and waves from the train driver as he came to a halt. Having settled into our seats and chatting to fellow passengers the train driver came and found us and asked if we’d like to come and sit with him whilst he drove, of course we said yes.

Rathnakumara has been driving the train for 35 years, living in Galle he does the Colombo to Galle route daily. It was so kind of him to invite us, another one of those lifetimes experiences.
