Just a little over a week since it opened new stations and extended its trips down south, the Philippine National Railways (PNR) has more good news to announce: It will soon deploy six new train coaches from PT Inka of Indonesia.
These new coaches are part of the 37 rail cars and three locomotives that the PNR has acquired from the said company. An arrival ceremony was held earlier today, December 11, during which the PNR representatives were joined by officials from the local government and the Department of Transportation, as well as representatives from the Embassy of Indonesia.
You can check out more photos from the official social media post below:
The new train coaches are ‘diesel multiple unit’ (DMU) motor cars that will form two new complete train sets. These are set to ply the PNR’s FTI-Tutuban and FTI-Malabon routes, and, once deployed and operational, they are expected to add around 18 to 20 trips to the aforementioned routes per day.
