Hatton to Ella Train - Ticket Purchase

What segment does one search and pre-purchase on the Expo Rail website for Hatton to Ella ...would you purchase Peradeniya to Ella? Confusing to figure out...appreciate any assistance.

Hi there,

Yes I think that comes closest, Hatton apparently is not popular enough to justify a separate ticket segment and price.

Do mind that the times of this train are 'fluid', SLR site now gives different times than Exporail site (and Seat61 summary) - hence do inquire locally at a station what the real times are going to be. Not necessarily those on SLR site, there is a 'pending' (or already executed?) major change in the timetable...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Hi there, we have the exact same question as above. We will be travelling in January 2015. Do you still suggest getting an Expo ticket from Peradeniya to Ella?

If you are booking the tickets online. You have to book it from Peradeniya. Also, the price from Peradeniya to Ella or Hatton to Ella would be the same on Expo. You can get in to the train from Hatton railway station.

All the Best !
