The operation of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) is still limited on Thursday as authorities are still trying to remove the derailed train in the southbound tracks along Don Bosco in Makati City.

According to the PNR management, the trips are limited to the following:

  • Tutuban to Dela Rosa and vice versa
  • Dela Rosa to Governor Pascual and vice versa
  • Tutuban to Governor Pascual, and vice versa
  • San Pablo to Lucena
  • Dela Rosa to Tutuban
  • Naga to Sipocot and vice versa

In an interview with the media, PNR General Manager Jeremy Regino said the rerailing team of the PNR, the Light Rail Transit Line 2 (LRT-2), and the Manila Metro Rail Transit System Line 3 (MRT-3) joined forces for the rerailing operations.


"Kakayanin natin ang paggamit ng rerailing equipment para maibalik dito sa unang riles. Subalit, sa apat na pagkakataon na sinubukan natin maibalik at mahatak itong locomotive natin ay hindi po tayo nagtagumpay," he said.

Regino said they will proceed with plan B and they are aiming to finish this within the day or early morning on Friday.

He noted that if the derailed train was successfully removed, the operations will not immediately resume.

"'Yung tracks naman ang titingnan natin. Pag-aaralan natin ng masusi kung ligtas at mag te-test run tayo bago natin i-declare na line clear. Kapag line clear, bukas ng umaga, first hour, pwede na po pero kung kakayanin natin mamayang gabi, 'yung last trip papuntang Calamba, ay susubukan po natin," he said.


On Tuesday, the train was derailed in Makati City at 11:20 am while it was en route to Alabang. The PNR management immediately suspended the operation of several trips.

None of the 400 passengers were reported injured or hurt.
