PNR extends train trips to Los Baños
By: Maricar Cinco - Reporter / @maricarcincoINQPhilippine Daily Inquirer / 04:15 AM September 20, 2019

SAN PEDRO CITY—The Philippine National Railways (PNR) has started test runs and clearing operations this week as it prepares for the opening next month of its south rail line to the university town of Los Baños in Laguna province.

The Los Baños station will be the 25th station of the Metro South Commuter Train that runs from Tutuban in Manila to Calamba City, also in Laguna.

Joseline Geronimo, PNR spokesperson, said two of the nine trains that the PNR purchased from the state-owned Indonesian firm PT Industri Kereta Api (PT Inka) were scheduled to arrive early next month in time for the scheduled launch of the new station.

Danger zone

But the 65-kilometer test run from Manila up to that part of the railway in front of the International Rice Research Institute in Los Baños was not one without a hitch.

The Philippine National Railways (PNR) has started extending its operations to Los Banos, Laguna using a “premium train” previously donated by Japan.

PNR spokesperson Joseline Geronimo told ABS-CBN News that they did a trial run last week but decided not to publicize the start of the actual operations since the train they are using can only accommodate 83 passengers.

The train leaves Los Banos around 5:07 a.m. and reaches Tutuban at around 8:14 a.m., according to the posted train schedule. Its next run is in the afternoon, leaving Tutuban station at 4:46 p.m. and arriving in Los Banos at 7:37 p.m.

DOTr - PNR Press Release
4 December 2019

PNR EXTENDS LINE TO LOS BAÑOS, ADDS TRAIN FROM JAPAN

Press release

The Philippine National Railways (PNR) formally extended its rail services to Los Baños, Laguna on 01 December 2019 with the addition of new stations and a train set from Japan.

Extending farther to the south, the existing PNR line starting from Tutuban, Manila gets five (5) new flag stop stations past the Calamba station, namely, Pansol, Masili, Los Baños, College, and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI).

Moreover, included in the main line now is one (1) Kogane train set, which consists of three (3) coaches. Passengers can enjoy reclining and rotating seats, stowable tables, leg rests, and a comfort room inside the train. The said train set from Japan can accommodate 81 passengers. The fare from Tutuban to Los Baños (IRRI) is PhP150.

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade commended the efforts of the PNR for modernizing its train sets and spreading its services outside of Metro Manila.

“Ako ay nagpapasalamat sa PNR sa kanilang patuloy na pagpapalawak ng kanilang serbisyo at pagdagdag ng mga makabagong bagon para sa ikagiginhawa ng ating mga kababayan. Umpisa pa lamang po ito, dahil marami pa pong ihahandog ang PNR na makakaabot ang riles sa iba’t ibang parte ng bansa,” Secretary Tugade said.

PNR General Manager Junn Magno said tests have been conducted to ensure smooth-running operation of the extended services, and that more trips will be added over time.

“With the holiday season in full effect, we might increase trip frequency the moment ridership improves. Our engineering department has certified the line to be passable, and our Operations and Rolling Stock departments made the necessary preparation for the extension of the service,” GM Magno said.

Apart from the Kogane train, two (2) new train sets from Indonesia will arrive next week. The train sets will be included in the PNR line under the Tutuban – FTI and Malabon – FTI routes.

The PNR ordered a total of 37 rail cars from Indonesia. On top of the two train sets comprised of three rail cars each that are due to arrive next week, 31 more coaches are set to be delivered from December 2019 to February 2020. These shall form seven train sets of four- and five-car configurations.
