I put my camera on the train tracks and let the train run over it. There’s enough room. Train tracks run all along the coast, so a day at the beach inevitably involves crossing the tracks. Not crossing so much as loitering, reconnoitering and perhaps having a picnic. Sri Lankans treat rail tracks with about as much caution as AK-47s, which is to say none at all. People live by the tracks, walk on them, let their kids play there. Remarkably, few people seem to get hit. I’ve taken a private train down to Bentota before and ridden the public up through Kandy. I’m pretty sure the Railways Corporation is losing money, but there’s still a certain romance. About 1:15 into this video you can see another train heading down Marine Drive.
