Powered by the mighty Alco 251 V12 this M10a locomotive was introduced in 2013. This is the last of 6 M10a variants with 3 previous M10s introduced in 2012. They were built by the Banaras locomotive works in India.
This M10 is working a service from Matara in the south of Sri Lanka to Colombo the capital. At this location the railway runs almost along the beach 6 k south of Colombo.
People hanging out of the side of the carriages is normal for Sri Lanka and a great way to ride the trains.
