Railway gets new power sets from China

The Government will import 13 new power sets from China for short and long distance services.

Sri Lanka Railways General Manager P.P. Wijesekera told the Daily News these power sets will be deployed to the up country line, coastal line and Kelani Valley line mainly to ease the rush hour congestion.

He said the 13 new power sets will arrive in the country in the first quarter of next year. "Earlier power sets were used for short distance regional services. We tested power sets for long distance services from Matara and Colombo and it was successful.

We plan to deploy especially designed power sets for long distance trains including upcountry service.

They have been especially designed for long distance journeys with all facilities," Wijesekera said.

He said a team of engineers of China Southern Railway (CSR) which provide power sets to Sri Lanka have arrived in the country to discuss future arrangements and the feasibility plan including technical and environmental backgrounds of new power sets.
