No engine oil to operate trains!

The Sri Lanka Railways says that trains will not be able to operate in the future due to the lack of engine oil.

A senior official of the Sri Lanka Railways said that the current engine oil level will only last only for another two months.

The Railway Department imports engine oil to Sri Lanka from India and China and has not been able to open letters of credit due to the shortage of dollars.

He further said that under such circumstances, several trains will have to be taken out of operation due to the lack of engine oil.
