It's obvious it's not your PNR since the track is electrified through overhead catenary/line in which PNR doesn't currently have.

Have you even tried any of those trains in Manila that you can be easily fooled and deceived by this b*llsh*t. Shame on you, dear ....
And since when did we say the Korail line was in Manila? It was only to show the test run for the MRT7 coaches. The PNR stations were shown on the last part of the video.

Why not answer the original question asked? Because you are just clearly blowing your descriptions out of proportion? Oh yes, now I know, it wasn't true at all.

You give me a link that shows specific part of the video at 569 second when the better looking trains from Korail pass by. After few seconds your PNR comes out. Which is so different and easily spotted which is which



For you, this is better than Jakarta commuter? LOL

Afterall, just admit that the video you give me is misleading. The tittle say "The Metro Manila Rail System 2018" yet it shows parts of Korean railway system and some unfinished projects. You know exactly I talk about the completed ones only.

Anyway, this is getting more pathetic. Let's just call them MRT or underground stations. Otherwise, go ahead continue with these non-sense.

yeah this is the Jakarta Subway MRT station which has tariffs complete with vending machines & manual . yeah in Singapore, KL, the BKK people there call their underground MRT is Subway, in Jakarta there are 6 Subway stations and *next it will be built MRT Phase II ( 2019 - 2025 ) from Bundaran Hi ---> Kota all lines are built underground so the amount from MRT Jakarta Subway station will have 12 stations

Well if we're talking about the future, by 2025, Manila will have 28 additional underground stations. 3 of them from the MRT opening up next year, 10 from the Makati subway opening up by 2025, and 15 from the Manila subway opening up by 2025 (and partial opening by 2022)

difference between buildings MANILA and JAKARTA is overall manila the skyscraper is usually close together but the design of the building is rather old-fashioned while the skyscraper Jakarta is not in one area and looks distant and a more modern design

Taken by the same person, a Japanese who loves to shot railway systems all over the world. So expect not so different POV and equipment he uses to capture his videos.

PNR


Jakarta Commuter


Never had a chance to ride your PNR. But judging by what's seen in the vid, I'd rather not try it at all.

Skyscrapers are not just there to look at from a helicopter. They're supposed to contribute to a dense urban environment, like a city.


The clustered design of Manila makes the areas where the skyscrapers are easier to walk around. So you dont just look at the skyscrapers from above or from the highway. You're walking amongst them.

In the picture below, the whole green strip running down the middle is a pedestrian area with stores and restaurants on both sides. In Jakarta, that would be a big highway instead because thats how Jakarta is built. The skyscrapers are stretched out along highways. So you experience the skyscrapers from your car or from a helicopter.

Here's a video of that area on a typical night

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-vQDt-tSN4
There's no special event, festival, or night market happening in the video. That's how active it always is


Nowhere in Jakarta has that much pedestrian activity on a typical night (not counting concerts, festivals, other events). Except maybe Kota Tua.

Doesnít matter, itís a US site with a primary American audience and English is very obviously not your native language. The overarching point is that subway or elevated or even ground level, what was being discussed was heavy rail rapid transit.

Ironically enough, there is a separate transport system in London named "The Overground" which has parts of it under ground. LOL.

Historically, they were built underground as Parliament passed a law forbidding train tracks from running through Central London. If you look at a map of London back then, terminal stations were built at the edge of what was the city back then.




The above station locations roughly correspond to the city's edges back then:




This is why the Underground was born -- to connect the passengers from the terminal rail stations located on the edges of the city to the various locations within the city. After the Underground was expanded to the suburbs, there were no laws forbidding them to run above ground as they do in Central London, so they built them above ground. But still, they are part of the Underground system.
Thumbs up! I was aware of the many above level tracks for London, but didnít want to comment about all of Europe as I havenít been to that many cities there. The terminal stations built at the former edge of city is a nice find!
