Who?

I took the train from Ella to Nuwara eliya yesterday and the board showing the timetable at Wella mentioned a Daily goods but was behind our train so not sure if it ran.

The new Railpage Mobile APP in development right now will allow myself for example and RP users to post photos and video to the database which will show up immediately on the photo thread.

Apparently yes but good luck finding anything as the freight system was left to run down previously during the war and most things switched to road.

Remember in developing countries such as Sri Lankia and India, they have generally abandoned small and medium scale rail freight in favor of trucking despite it being slower. Indian Rail do not move anything smaller than rake load.

Just doing some googling, it was hard to find any references to SL rail freight outside their website. Nothing in Wiki.

i think fuel/oil is one of the main stays.

The Vice Roy special does run in Sri Lanka on the Broad Gauge but as I understand it by charter only.  Had a great trip through the mountains are previously mentioned.
