Have you Taken a Train Ride?

The first time I ride on a Train was like a few Years ago back on my High-school days. Yup i also took a Air-con-less train just to get to school, it's actually a few miles far from my house, most specially if it's one hell of a traffic. I can get used a lot of people but I am cautious too, and notice some guys groping on the girls, that was then before they separated Cars for Women,children and Elderly. The first train that I took a ride to was named Land Rail Transit, it was very small and can congest a lot of people..but now they import new train cars which are bigger and better, but more congested too. there's another train that i actually ride on before and that was the MRT..that was the first air-conditioned train i ever rode.. Speaking of Trains, I decided to make my own version of M.R.T. and I call it the Mylot Rail Transit Express. this is actually going to be part of the movie that I am currently Making. unfortunately, it's only for the purpose of putting people in and talked, It's basically a lot..men, i wish they're some Sims Fanatics, probably i could get a better advice. well, i ruled out the Bus scene because the cast is at least big and in one lot it can only accommodate eight(8) characters. well, I'll be making the Police station or the Military base sometime the next day. Oh, here's the link for the other view.. NOt a referral Link. http://www.shareapic.net/content.php?id=19244904&owner=Greeneagle24 Have a Great My-lot Day

hi buddy. yes, i had experienced riding trains. the last time i had ride train was about 2 years ago, with MRT, that's the train that goes from EDSA Taft to North EDSA, right? i remember the first time i rode train was when i was studying in Taguig and i have to go home in Bulacan. that's a very long travel, everyday. that was the PNR trains, i guess managed by the government. then there was LRT. and the other MRT or LRTs which is never tried because i already here now in Cebu. ok, i guess this one is a better idea than mysd's bus plot. as you said, tis can accomodate more people than a bus. neil

PNR?? I never experienced riding on that train. How i wish they can try putting air-con on those train cars too..i don't get it? how come there's no train in Cebu? the Government should make more trains there, right? it's quiet and the place is pretty...just a thought

i think i heard PNR is back in operation, with aircon cabins/cars but i'm not sure about it. but i remember it was something like upto pampanga in north and to bicol region. that's were people got BICOL EXPRESS, don't know about that or never heard of it? it think the reason for Cebu not having trains is because this place is not just too congested as Manila or Luzon. but there is something i heard, some legislators already proposed to creating the light rails here.

Oh, I see. yeah, too many people in Manila that you can see all kinds of criminals.so, that's where they got the term Bicol Express. I used to seeing the rail but never the trains. i just hope they fix the tracks first as i heared rumors of trains tracks being stolen and sold to the highest bidder

And that's probably why i hated the government for that. most people in mindanao can't even get a decent tricyle or jeepney ride with out congesting the vehicle first, except in the metro cities there. It would have been cool if trains from three islands(including palawan and spratlys) should be all connected so that we won't to be worried when using planes or Ships(sinks most) all the time. you have role, sorry..

I ride the MRT twice a week... from the North Edsa Station to the Ayala station... the ride is quite pleaseant around lunch time because there are not that many people riding the train... but during rush hour starting 5 pm... it can be very crowded... but i prefer that rather than face the heavy traffic along EDSA...

You've done a good job with this. Keep up the good work. No, I've never taken a train ride. I would like to sometime, though. I don't know where I would get the money because money is tight at my house. The only trains I've ridden were the ones at Stone Mountain Georgia, Six Flags Over Georgia, Opryland, Disneyland, Silver Dollar City, Dollywood, etc. I want to take a [b][/b]real train ride, though.

I love roller coaster rides! It's been a long time since I've ridden one, though. Would you believe I never have ridden one that turns you upside down? I just never have had the chance. I never have ridden a footless one, either. I started to ride the one at Opryland years ago and I'm ashamed to admit this but I chickened out after watching it a while,lol. They don't have any rides at Opryland any more. If I had the chance, I would like to ride one that takes you upside down and a footless one. Kathy.

The most unforgettable experience I have riding in a train was a year ago when I went to Shanghai,China. Since I always heard that for you to see the beautiful sceneries in china is to get a train ride. But I did not expect that I had to live for 1 day in a train to travel from Shanghai to Guangzhou and the worst for this ride is that everybody there didn't know on how to speak english that's why all day & night of my ride i just sleep and sleep until I reach my destination. Imagine to travel for almost 30hours in a train with you have nobody to talk to its so boring. That's why when I went again this year I travel by plane.

Hello... I use to ride on a train specifically MRT from Guadalupe to Taft then LRT from EDSA to the Central Station. It's the fastest way of getting to Intramuros campuses aside from taking a motorcycle ride... :)

hello LetranKnight25, the only time i can ride a train is when i go to manila. other than that, not for we don't have a train here where i live. and i think it's impossible to have one here for the city that we are living is just small. besides it's not that traffic here.

It must be really cold there and foggy am i right, robert. I wish they can make more trains towards the other province like heading to Pangasinan or farther than baguio itself...that would have been cool..

There was a train before from Manila to San Fernando, La union and when we were kids we used to go to the train station and wait for the train which brings a lot of sugar cane from Ilocos. Sometime it stops and we get a lot of free sugarcane. I took a ride from this and the view was great from Pangasinan to La Union because of the beach and the open fields. Childred throw stone at the train that's why it has some metal railings. I think the Arroyo government want to build this route but it end up in lots of conroversy. It will be great if we have like a bullet train from Manila to Ilocos region.

Nice train Letran! I have taken the LRT a few times when I was still in college. I don't know how to ride on a train or even buy a ticket during that time but my friends thought me how. And I would always go with them when they ride the LRT. When the MRT was built I also had taken a ride on it, maybe 5 times. I seldom commute when I'm in the Quezon City, staying with my family. I'm not very good in going to different places and commuting. Most of the time I get lost hehe. And it's been years now since I have taken my last ride on the train. Ciao!

you mean they "taught" you how to buy tickets and just ride on the train.well, as of this moment i seldom commute because i don't have money. but it was still enjoyable being in the LRT or specially the MRT aircon.

Hehehe.. My friends would always visit malls in Manila and our school is at Sta. Cruz so when they want to go to Baclaran or to anywhere, they ride the LRT. They basically taught me how. But I can't still ride a the train alone. I'm scared.

i am not a player of sims but i saw a few from my older nephews and from other friends as well. but you did one good job. how many hours you sit it front of the pc just to complete that? regarding trains here in the metro, yes i was so happy that they have separated the cars for men and women. so we women wont have a hard time pushing in even it is crowded. there are men who rides the train only to have a chance to do what they want to do.

yes I do. When I was in college, my means of transporatation was by train, specifically Light Rail Transit. When I have my first job I also ride a train because my working place was far. I have to ride it to make my time of travel short. I like to ride a train, I much prefer to ride it compare to bus and FX although you have to suffer for the long and tiring walk using stairs, consider it as an exercise. And now they have train section that the passengers are only ladies and gentlemen are separated to avoid problems when the train is jam packed with passengers. Train is fast and economical, although it is not running for 24 hours.

Cool train! I love trains; I used to catch one to work every day. While we were backpacking on the other side of the world we moved from place to place by train because for us it was the cheapest way to travel. We visited a few Asian and European countries and could not afford to fly anywhere. The trains were great, very relaxing way to travel; we travelled on one that had beds and everything, good fun!
