On the sign on the left, you can just about make out "junction". The wikipedia page on Sri Lankan railways has only one 4-letter junction station, Maho Junction, and the semaphores match other photos of that station on the web

The signals are excellent examples of those supplied by Westinghouse in the UK to what was then the Ceylon Government Railways. Westinghouse had a range of castings with the lettering CGR on them - including these rather stylish finials. I wonder at the purpose of the (light shade?) on the post of the top left signal.
