LOOK: Duterte admin delivers another set of BRAND NEW TRAINS for PNR


"Development comes in when trains start rolling."

Words of acknowledgement and pride from DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade as he expressed excitement in today's send-off ceremony for the BRAND NEW TRAINS of the Philippine National Railways (PNR).
The new 8100 Series Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) trains, which consists of eight rail cars with a four-car formation per set, was presented to the public and fhe media as it undergoes the standard 150-hour validation test run.

"Hindi po ba kaaya-aya, ang laki ng pagkakaiba ng bagong tren ng PNR mula sa dating tren nito? Ito po ang bunga ng pagtutulungan ng mga kasamahan natin sa PNR," added the transportation chief.
For PNR General Manager Junn Magno, the event is a testament to the commitment of PNR to fully revive its once glorious stature as the primary transport system of the land. "This is delivery of a promise. Last December we told everyone that we will be delivering two sets every month. Sabi po natin kay Secretary Tugade meron po tayong delivery ng December, may delivery tayo ng February, March, April hanggang May. By the first half of 2020, we should have 9 sets," he said in his opening remarks.

PNR showcased the upgraded features of the new DMU trains which include additional hand-holds available in the middle area, polycarbonate glass windows, tropicalized air-conditioning and obstacle door detectors.
And in an expression of gratitude, GM Magno thanked all the men and women of PNR who worked hard for the realization of this initiative, as well as to Secretary Tugade who has been very supportive of the PNR.

"Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa lahat ng mga hardworking na kawani natin sa PNR. Gayundin po sa ating mahal na Secretary Art Tugade. Magaling na boss po 'yan kasi lagi po siyang nakasuporta at hindi po siya nagbigay ng obstacle para sa transformation ng PNR," said GM Magno.

The new trains can carry 1,000 passengers per trip and they are slated to ply the Tutuban-Alabang route.
