Train tickets from Maradana to Galle - where can I buy them?

Hi

On the day of our arrival (noon day 1), we want to buy tickets to leave to Galle in the morning of Day 2.

Can I buy our Maradana-Galle tickets at the Colombo Fort train station, or do I absolutely need to buy them at the Maradana station?

Thank you

Does nor work. Reserving is for one train only (655 AM Fort) and better done from abroad. Same day tickets from the departing station so Maradana,

Thank you

6h55 will too early for us. So we'll take the 8h10 from Maradana and will try to see if we can have reserved seating at that time.

Pleaae read the info given above, That train has NO reservation options. Some chance for a seat indeed as many people leave it at Fort, and then those boarded in Maradana have a chance to get it those at Fort generally not.
