Kilinochchi railway station (Tamil: கிளிநொச்சி தொடருந்து நிலையம் Kiḷinocci toṭaruntu nilaiyam) is a railway station in the town of Kilinochchi in northern Sri Lanka. Owned by Sri Lanka Railways, the state-owned railway operator, the station is part of the Northern Line which links the north with the capital Colombo. The popular Yarl Devi service calls at the station. The station was not functioning between 1990 and 2013 due to the civil war. The Northern Line between Omanthai and Kilinochchi was re-opened on 14 September 2013.[1][2]
