Railway line from Kandy to Mathale, Sri Lanka.

Hello Phillip,
Please circulate this among my batch mates.

I am proud to say that the Kandy Matale railway line was built by my ancestor James Henry Reid, but that is where my pride ends and my shame begins. He built the railway line directly to the coffee estate belonging to his brother so that his brother could transport his coffee easily to Colombo. This is the real reason for the railway line having a dead end at Matale.
