Operations of upcountry train services have been hampered due to  a lack of train engine availability.

A high-ranking official at the Department of Railways said that this may cause delays in train services.

He added that the train engines that have been allocated to provide services in the event of a emergency breakdown of a train engine , have also been included into the operations at present. He noted that  of  train engines that were imported from France a decade ago, only one is in operation on the up country line.

He further stated that the other train engines are damaged beyond repair.
