I travelled to this station in the hills in January 2018.  An amazing stopping place and nice large station although it like many on the network could do with a clean.

This station is used for access to Nuwara Eliya and the tea plantations.  The district of NE is just magnificient.  I shall upload some photos shortly.

Based on the dialling code, Sri Lanka. It would be *really* nice if the country could be identified in these posts.

Just google the railway station name and it shows the country.

I can see the tea growing in the background must be a high station location ?

The station is in the highlands of Sri Lanka in the central area of the island. Much tea is grown in the region with myself and family visiting two tea plantations in the area.  Also of note is the Grand Hotel which is somewhat like the Galle Face Hotel in Colombo but in the highlands where beautiful scenery and climate can be abundantly enjoyed.

'.... Just google the railway station name and it shows the country.  ...'

That attitude is one of the major problems here on RP.

By all means post anything that you like but consider your readers.

One should not need a dictionary, Google, a Bible of unexplained acronyms or a translator to make sense of a post. A good post will be self explanatory and more or less stand alone. Unexplained acronyms mean different things to different people eg STD or STD.

I have campaigned, largely unsuccessfully, for years about the use of unexplained acronyms on RP and this approach is but an extension of an attitude 'that I know and you don't - so get stuffed' . In other words look it up, try to translate it or work it out for yourself.

This is not a personal attack but rather a message for those who might consider their wider readership a little more.

I am well aware that I am wasting my time which is the reason that I rarely post on RP these days. Rolling Eyes
