Train from Colombo to Habarana


I am interested in getting the train from Colombo Fort at 6.05am in July to Habarana. I know I cannot reserve a seat online but agencies online offer that service. Is it worth reserving and booking with an agency or is buying tickets on the day okay?

Hi Lucy,

For the reserved carriage: your guess is as good as ours. Sometimes fully booked weeks ahead sometimes still last minute seats. For all other, unreservable, carriages: tickets never sell out but chance of loosing the scum and having to stand til Polgahawela at least are big.

All the best,
