Demodara RailWAy Loop

Why Demodara Railway Station?

The Ceylon Government Railway allowed a maximum inclination of 1:44 (1 foot per 44 feet). Since the inclination of the Demodara mountain is higher than the standard value they had to find a different way to build the railway track

Engineers built the rail like a spiral which allows a train to go around the mountain and leave the mountain through a tunnel
