A 2009-built Hyundai Rotem DMU arrives at Alabang, which is the outer limit of commuter services from the Tutuban terminus. There is a wealth of detail in this picture - notice the informal platform seating, the motorcycle and sidecar taxis, the vividly painted building on the left; and last but not least, the array of domestic electricity meters conveniently grouped together for reading purposes, atop the wooden pole on the right. The mesh cover on the windscreen is interesting: knowing the locals as I do, I consider it more likely to protect against accidents than against vandalism.
