Manila

When I first visited the Tutuban terminus of PNR see image 36982, the station interior was cool and clean, but rather empty. When I heard a rumour that all passenger services had been withdrawn from this station, I was sad, but not surprised. But the rumour was false; and among many other positive developments, the Filipinos have found their history. This restored railcar has just four seats, and appears to be a petrol-engined maintenance vehicle. The relaxed passengers visible on the right probably arrived on an overnight train; but they could be waiting for the next one!
