GREAT RAILWAY JOURNEYS OF THE SRI LANKA The railway line from Colombo to Badulla is a spectacular railway line which, over a distance of 180 miles(290km), ascends from sea level to 6500 feet and then descends in to the Uva valley (or Uva Basin as it is usually called) to terminate at Badulla at 2000 feet. The railway was built by the British in the latter part of the 19th century primarily for freight.(Guage: 5ft6in, 1676mm) Since then very little has been changed. The gradients are steep and the tight curves prevent the use of modern rolling stock. Because of the rugged terrain earthslips are common. There are 46 tunnels on this line and one complete spiral (at Demodera). There are only two trains in any one direction each day which run the whole distance.The Udarata Menike takes at least 9 hours to do the journey (on a good day!) !
