train times Colombo-Matara

I am struggling to find up to date train timetables for this journey. Some websites say there is a train leaving Colombo fort at 10:30 for Matara but others miss this one out , where is the most accurate information to be found?

Yes but that one is a few years old. And definitely outdated at some parts, e.g. Colombo to/from Trinco daytime trains...

All the best,

You can find several websites with train timetables, but the on I posted in reply # 1 is the official government portal, i.e. it will be the best updated.
