Manila

Market day at Taguig, right next to the PNR main line to Alabang see image 40401. Notice the market stalls built onto motorbike sidecars; the practical addition of umbrellas; and the skate (in the distance) on the right hand track. Skates are home-built powered wagons, privately owned and operated. They provide a useful service to the public, but contribute nothing to PNR; and can be rather dangerous, as they have no formal collaboration with the PNR working timetable. Understandably, they are not easy to photograph; especially up close.
