MANILA, Philippines – The new trains acquired by the Philippine National Railways (PNR) from Indonesia will not reach the Alabang station, as rail officials have admitted encountering obstruction and security problems.

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade on Wednesday said they initially wanted the trains to reach the Alabang station and the other stations beyond it, but the plan was shelved for safety reasons after the trains were stoned and attacked by people with slingshots.

Part of the recent attacks on our trains; this photo was just sent to me by the DOTr.

"Clarify ko lang ha.. Lumang trains yung binabato ang bintana.

Iba ang ginagawa nila sa mga bagong trains. Hindi nila masisira bintana num kasi polycarbonate na. So, ang ginagawa, hinaharangan nila ng debris na dumadale sa undercarriage. Yung mga photos sa taas na may hinarang na debris, sa Sampaloc Area ‘yan." Asec GoddesHope Oliveros-Libiran

To think that with all that the Filipino commuter has to put up with, they have to put up with this as well...
