You should study the Philippine Railway history.

Philippine Railways (Heavy Rail) are way better in the yesteryear's of 1890s to 10943 before the Japanese War..

That's a fact, no need to post evidences here just google it!

I was under the impression it was 110 kph.

Also, please be reminded that you're in the international forums, so please speak English.

2nd Bicol Express trip mulled
By KRIS BAYOS
November 7, 2011, 5:15pm

MANILA, Philippines -- The Philippine National Railways (PNR) is studying additional trips for the Bicol Express after its ridership doubled during the last All Saints’ Day break.

PNR General Manager Jun Ragrario said the PNR board is considering a second trip for the Bicol Express, which runs between Tutuban in Manila and Naga City in Camarines Sur daily, after its passenger volume increased from October 28 to November 2 with only a minimal drop after the peak season for travel.

Ragrario said the Bicol Express, which can accommodate at least 152 passengers per trip, usually has 35 percent of its seats filled during lean seasons. But the passenger volume doubled during the traditional exodus to the provinces.

“Undas (All Saints) proved to be an opportunity for us to market the Bicol Express because only a few passengers knew that it was already operational,” he said.

“The ridership increased by an average of 80 percent during Undas,” he added.

Ragrario said the passenger volume during All Saints Day gave them a preview of what to expect for the Christmas break and is why they are mulling a second trip for the Bicol Express.

He encouraged commuters to take the PNR for their trips to Southern Luzon especially since fares are still on promotional rates. He said Manila-to-Naga passengers will only pay P548 for air-conditioned reclining seats or P665 for family sleeper cabins with four berths each.

The trip takes just about 10 hours.

Try the Railroad Infrastructures and Transportation Thread in the Philippine Forum. It's much busier.

PNR adds extra trip to Bicol region
Quote:
MANILA — The Philippine National Railways (PNR) said on Friday it is fielding additional train trip to the Bicol region starting next week.

PNR said the additional trip will also extend its route from Naga City, the current destination in Camarines Sur, to Polangui, Ligao, and Travesia in Albay.

Starting March 12, in addition to the regular 6:30 p.m. Bicol Express which runs daily from Manila to Naga City and vice versa, another train will leave at 8:30 p.m.

The Mayon Limited De Luxe (MLD) will run every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while the Mayon Limited Ordinary (MLO) will run every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

The additional trip is expected to arrive at 5:45 a.m. in Naga City, 6:50 a.m. in Polangui, and 7:00 a.m. in Ligao, Albay the next day.

The one-way fare for the MLD is P716 for Naga and P768 for Ligao, while that for the MLO is P416 and P491 for Naga and Ligao, respectively.

The additional trains will have different configurations: the MLD will have three air-conditioned coaches, all of which are fitted with executive reclining seats, while the MLO will have three cars fitted with electric fan-ventilated coaches and fixed (non-reclining) seats.

PNR decided to field the additional trip because of the increasing volume of passengers to and from Bicol, and also in anticipation of the heavy influx of travelers during the coming Holy Week.

The trains to be fielded by PNR are part of the donated 20 coaches from the East Japan Railway Co. (JR-East) which arrived in the country late last year.

Already, some of these coaches are being used by PNR for its commuter operation in Metro Manila, while the others are still being refurbished and refitted for further use in its commuter and provincial operations.

The revival last year of the operation of the Bicol Express gives the riding public in the South an alternative means to reach provincial destinations in Southern Luzon (and vice versa) and likewise enjoy the countryside scenery in comfort.

testing of the EMUs that were donated by Japan last year... since PNR lines are not electrified, these sets are hauled by a locomotive...
