A Ride in the PNR Train

At last, we rode the PNR train for the first time ever.  I’m happy the previous administration pushed through with  the rehabilitation of this railway.  Take note that I’m being super positive on this one.  At least there’s something the government did that makes my life easier.

Z was as excited as I was.  Little boys just love trains!  The train stations are hot and not something to boast about but at least the trains are squeaky clean and the airconditioning is even better than MRT’s.

Inside the PNR Train

It's my first time here.

No seat for me. huhu

From Bicutan to Blumentritt we paid P15 each. Children 3 feet and below are free but Z is already a little over that so we had to pay for his fare. We still don’t mind as it’s so affordable. Our train ride lasted only 40 minutes and we’re already on our stop.

The reason why I’m so excited with this train is because we plan to visit my Dad often.  He lives in Caloocan and without this there’s no way we can visit him as often as we want.  We have to wait for hubby to drive us there and since I’m already guilty of taking away some of his precious rest hours for my errands then it means I won’t ask him to drive us there as often as I want.  But with the train so accessible from our place we can visit him after Z’s classes and be back at home just in time for hubby’s arrival from work.  Talk about convenience!

We were only at my Dad’s for 2 1/2 hours and we had to hurry back home again.  Next time, we really have to go earlier.  At 3 pm we were already at the train station going back home.  We waited for 10 minutes before the train arrived.  In order not to wait too long you have to time your arrival.  Be sure to check the PNR Train Schedule before you go on a ride.

Take a picture of me, Mom, so that I don't forget I rode the train!

Of course, a picture inside too.

We're home. Thanks, PNR!

    Whoa! Mukha na siyang MRT ah! I need to ride those trains again. The ordinary coaches have wooded seats and no hanging handles like that. Maalog pa rin ba? My father once described the feeling of being in the train like as if you’re on a rocking boat.

    I used to ride LRT in going to work (Caloocan) and back home (Pasay) before (2006-2008). When I saw this, I thought it’s really LRT pero at the end PNR nga!! hehehe Ibang-iba na yung train niya dati, maganda na sya ngayon! :D
