Hi there,

It's not a very scenic journey but in the Wattegama part there are some nice views. Generally the trains start from Kandy, it's the only track/platform coming out of the northeast side of the station whilst the southwest side (Colombo and Eliya) has far more platforms/capacity.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
