The German built Thyssen-Henschel Class M6 locomotive seen hauling the mixed passenger - goods train from Kandy to Badulla. The video was early in the morning when the rails were wet with the dew overnight. The locomotive can be seen struggling on the incline after stopping at a station.
Steam locomotives disappeared from the Sri Lankan railways in the early 1980's. Three of them were rescued and are regularly used to haul the Vice Roy luxury train. This video is about a different kind of train, namely a steam-hauled mixed freight train chartered in February 2016 to visit the magnificent line between Colombo and Badulla. A tour organized by www.farrail.net.
The FT was Electro-Motive Division's (EMD) first large-volume diesel locomotive for freight service. Usually operated in three- or four-unit sets, they proved that diesels could replace steam at the head of freight trains. The Burlington took delivery of its first EMD FT's in 1944. They must have been brand-new when this film was shot in January of that year. This film comes from the Fox Movietone News outtakes collection at the University of South Carolina's Moving Image Resource Collection. It's shown in their records as being filmed around Keenesburg, Colorado. Unfortunately, this film did not come with sound.

The second thing that terrified me is, that the news of wild elephants are roaming around this station (some even come to the train platform!) at every night here. I had no other options but to calm myself and wait for two and half hours until the train comes. However, despite being alone and scared at first, I actually started to enjoy the calm and serenity of this small station. That night was quit...
