Train saga chugs along with Muthu Kumari

By Edmund Liyanage, Chilaw

Readers D. Gunasekara and Arul have suggested different names for the trains in Sri Lanka (ST of July 5 and 12), but regrettably have forgotten the Chilaw/Puttalam train ‘Muthu Kumari’ although it has been plying for 51 years.

It is sad that they have ignored my ‘Kumari Muthu’ on which I travelled until my retirement. I never missed this train as it was habitually late.

This is also a record-holding train, which has never kept to time, whether it was up or down.

If anyone comes late, he is sarcastically told: “You are like the Puttalam train”.
