Railway Halts of Sri Lanka
Other Estate Halts and Platforms
Hyndford (HYP) is a rather decrepit estate or plantation halt, badly maintained and further disfigured by political posters.
The fact that some of the local poor people still use this halt, is a good enough reason for maintaining it as a halt.
Location: Main Line at 89:29 and between Nawalapitiya and Inguru Oya.
Train services: Some mixed local baby trains between Nawalapitiya and Hatton stop here. The main trains, Udarata Menike, Podi Menike and the Night Mail Train do not stop here. There is no ticket office. The guard on the train sells tickets.
