Colombo-Kandy Railway line about 1870, 1870

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y303B/45

Scope and Contents

260 x 108 mm. View from the hillside above the railway looking down onto the track, with station buildings in the foreground and the ‘Lion’s Mouth’ beyond. A locomotive stands near the rock, with labourers clustered beneath the overhang. The station buildings and sidings seen here were probably temporary, since the completed line had no steps between Ballany and Kadugannawa.


  • Creation: 1870
