Some ignorant people have nothing to do with their lives but to throw rocks at trains. They think that our trains are target boards

Are you drunk or what?

These were purchased back in 2009, not in 2011. And they don't have restrooms. And they weren't made by Kia

You like capital letters don't you?


OT:
I like the ambition and progress they make in the Philippines, the only thing is that all stations look really basic/harsh. No signs, no seats, no lights the lot. Putting it this way, the station doesn't look attractive or appealing to someone who is travelling, or helpful to someone who hasn't traveled there before.

President Aquino renews PNR charter
20 Jun 2014


PNR operates commuter services between Naga and Sipocot in southern Luzon using diesel railcars

PHILIPPINES: The corporate charter of national operator Philippine National Railways was extended by a further 50 years on June 18, when President Benigno Aquino signed into law Republic Act 10638.

PNR was established as the state railway in 1964, tasked with managing the 1 067 mm gauge main line network on the island of Luzon, which at that time totalled more than 1 000 route-km. Over the intervening decades, a shortage of investment, competition from other modes and frequent storm damage has led to a substantial contraction in PNR’s operations, and today it runs just a limited commuter service on part of the 480 km main line between Manila and Legaspi.

A number of local politicians have been pushing for the renewal of PNR’s charter to enshrine commitments to improve the quality of rail services on Luzon. The Act is understood to require the acceleration of railway rehabilitation works; PNR has previously suggested that daily trains between Manila and Legaspi could be reintroduced from September, once bridges damaged by typhoons in 2012 have been repaired

Is PNR still serving Bicol area? I simply do not want to experience a 9 hour bus trip again.

I guess there are no new developments in railways. That's sad.

Government invites bids for 171bn pesos PPP concession
15 Jul 2015



PHILIPPINES: The Department of Transportation & Communications has issued a prequalification request for a 171bn pesos PPP project worth covering the rehabilitation and extension of the Main Line South, which links Manila with Bicol province on the island of Luzon.

According to DOTC, the project is the largest PPP to be launched in the country to date. At the core is a major modernisation of the existing 479 km, 1 067 mm gauge main line between Manila and Legaspi, where a skeleton service is still operated by Philippine National Railways on some sections

More about the North South Commuter Rail line:
Quote:
JAPAN’S Hitachi Ltd. is considering making a big infrastructure play in the Philippines via railway public-private partnership (PPP) projects like the P171-billion North South Commuter railway deal, where it will also need local partners, a company official said Friday.

Alistair Dormer, global CEO of Hitachi Rail, told the Inquirer that the group has already been studying the country’s infrastructure and transportation requirements for the last six months.

China offers to build Manila-Clark railway

Hmm, anyone remember Northrail?
Quote:
DAVAO CITY, Philippines – China can build the Philippines a railway from Metro Manila to Clark, Pampanga in two years.

This was the offer made recently by Chinese diplomats to Philippine President-elect Rodrigo Duterte.

“The ambassador said, ‘We will do the railway immediately and we will solve your Clark-Manila railway. We’ll use the shortest way.' I don’t know how they’ll do it. But we will complete it in two years,” Duterte said during a speech on Tuesday, June 21.

The incoming president addressed businessmen and his own Cabinet appointees in a forum in Davao City.
