  18. So MAYON LIMITED line is different from BICOL EXPRESS line? I've already tried BICOL EXPRESS last December and I would say it was a nice experience (different, at least). But honestly, halos hindi ako nakatulog sa "Sleeper" because feeling ko parang tatagilid/matutumba ang train kapag dumadaan sa kurbada. By the way, do you have "Family/ Executive Sleeper", (just like in BICOL EXPRESS? Hope to ride also in MAYON LIMITED, soon…

  35. Cathy Claro says:

    wah! I miss riding the train, we would ride the train going home to bicol every summer when we were kids. wala pang national highway nun, so no choice kundi magtrain. pero masaya. dami pa nagbebenta ng kung anu-ano, pamaypay na laging ako nagpapabili kasi sa economy lang kami umuupo, yung paborito kong puto binan, bibe na nakatuhog, balot/ penoy, ice tubig, at kung anu-ano pa. hmmm… nostalgic naman… hoping to ride the train again soon. :D

    1. ilang hours naman ang byahe cath pag train from manila?

    2. Cathy Claro says:

      hehe, nuon kasi di pare-parehas, kasi di pa hi-tech nuon, minsan inaabot ng matagal kasi naghihintayan ang mga tren. iisa lang kasi ang railway kaya pag may northbound minsan maghihintay sa isang town ang southbound na makatawid ang northbound or vice versa, bago tumuloy sa byahe. meron one time inabot kami ng 23 hrs from manila to legazpi. hehehe, pero i don't think na ganun pa rin katagal ngayon. trains are a lot faster than bus kaya dapat masmabilis makarating, yung traffic lang nakakapatagal dyan.
