Manila

A Hitachi-built BoBo diesel has just arrived at Manila's Tutuban terminus with a passenger train. The single cab engine will reverse smartly out of the platform to shunt around the stock, ready for the next duty. Notice the signalling tower and shed in the left background, and the pitched roof on the carriage to the right - to stop passengers getting free rides atop the coach. The locomotive is built to the same layout as a class 20, but strangely, sounds just like a 31. See image 35968
