Firstly it did not meet the original specifications for the wheel base length which caused derailments. The engineers tried adjusting the track width and also the locomotives wheels were modified, but none was satisfactory.
The other thing was it used a Ruston ship engine. This engine wasn't used in a locomotive anywhere in the world. The engine isn't itself bad, but built for a different purpose in mind. I believe it was British built.
Who was in the Ministerial committee was Lakshman Kadiragamar, Kingsley Wickramaratne, Lakshman Jayakody and Ratnasiri Wickramanayake.
It was CBK and these four that created the disaster and you should lay the blame on them. Not the Technical committee or the railway engineers.
