The cold wastelands of Siberia in Russia cannot be traversed without the train. That is why I do not understand why a succession of Philippine presidents, including the current one, has neglected our only train system, the Philippine National Railways (PNR).

I’ve no idea why. Perhaps someone at the transportation department can tell me.
