Train Nuwara Eliya to Ella can I get ticket at station ?

Going to travel by train form Nuwara Eliya to Ella, can I buy the ticket on the day at the station?

Which side should I sit to get the best views please?

which carriage should I use, I was thinking of just going 2nd class as I don't want to travel with just tourists! will I still get a good view?

is the early train really busy?

any more tips and hints welcomed thank you travellers

ExpoRail is not 2nd class.

You can buy tickets on the day at Nanu Oya (Nuwara Eliya) station.

Opinions on the "best view" vary.

The first bit - from nanu oya onwards - has a better view on the right side. Then there is a stretch, roughly from Ohiya to Bandarawela where the left side has great sloping vistas while the right side is mostly mountain slope.

Someone else might have a more accurate description on this.
