travelling by train/bus - schedules? web pages?

Hello,

could anybody help me with online pages of Sri Lanka 's train or bus companies? I'm planning our trip and I would like to know more about times and possibilities of transport. We need from Colombo to Sigiriya, Sigiriya to Kandy and Ohyia, Haputalle, Ella, Potuvill. Back from Potuville to Colombo (I read about night bus, departing 19.30 I guess).

Thanks a lot! Have a nice day!

In this faq

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c195051/Sri-L…

further below some bus sites are mentioned, but it's far from complete coverage. Can't help, the average local bus traveller has no access to Internet hence no urge to make these sites.

All the best,
