Hi we are trying to travel from Kandy to Ella on 17th April. Our agency has advised despite requesting ages ago that our intended train is booked. We have read about trying an earlier station for an unreserved seat either Pilimathalawa or Kadugannawa in the hope that when people depart at Kandy we can get a seat.
First would this be a recommendable option on that day?
If so we have a number of questions:
(1) which station is better?
(2) Is it easy to find where to buy the ticket on arrival at the station?
(3) what time are the trains from these station and is there one time or train which is preferable?
Thank you so much!!!
