I have to admit the new livery looks better.
I say the new livery with the old logo at the front. Can any of our Photoshop experts do that???

OK, a new thread and a new range of nicknames that offend some quarters of the Philippines so.

This is the BL class, commonly refered to as "The Box Loco" or even "The Box The Actual Loco Came In". Neither the current, or previous owners seem to take offence at the nickname. They serve a purpose.

I prefer the new one, which is modern and with soothing blue lines, except the new logo.

the new logo looks modern. the train with the former logo has sentimental value, but it looks like james west and artemus gordon from the 'wild, wild west' tv series might be holed up inside.

That would be nice, though given how **** they can be about logos etc I guess not. I was however surprised to see the old livery out and about on that test run instead of the highly secret one.

Para sa akin po maganda yung bagong design. Sana lang wala na yung sticker na kulay blue sa may bintana sa harapan at sa bubong.

What the administrators should do is automatically demolish illegal structures at the first sight of construction.

I like the new one, fresh logo signifying a fresh start. Looks so modern and seem looking forward to a longer lasting train service for every Juan and Maria.

I remember na noong 2006 yata na may coach na naglalaman ng relief goods ang pinadala ni PGMA sa mga kababayan natin na nasalanta ng bagyo via PNR. Ano kaya ang unit na yun?
