LOOK: LRT-1 decked the halls with boughs of holly
(SPOT.ph) It is indeed the "season to be jolly" as the Light Rail Manila Corporation, operator of the Metro's Light Rail Transit system, decked one of the otherwise boring trains with holiday decor. The special Christmas Train was launched on November 28 and became a delightful treat for rush hour commuters.
"The Christmas Train is part of a small project to lighten the mood of our passengers," Corporate Communications head of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Rochelle Gamboa told CNN Philippines. The special train of LRT-1 looks normal on the outside but is a different world altogether inside. If you're lucky enough to catch a ride, you can see the candy-striped poles, wreaths hanging by the windows, red and green overhead lights, and even lantern stickers on the ceiling. There's even a nativity scene on one end of the train.
We're used to seeing LRT scenarios on Instagram because of crowd congestion and long lines, but this time, the Christmas Train is all over social media for a good reason. The holiday-themed train runs until January 8, 2017. LRT-1 travels from Baclaran station in Pasay City to Roosevelt Station in Quezon City.
