While the Philippines ponders bewildered, perplexed, and stumped on how to run a light rail system whose origins date back to the beginning of the 20th century where early cities realized the contribution of mass transit to progress and development. In fact, Spain’s Department of Public Works for the Philippines started construction on a steam-powered tranvia way back in 1885. Oh how far we’ve gone… BACKWARDS!!! If you really want to know, the history of rail transport began in the 6th century BC in Ancient Greece. Oh how proud we Filipinos can be of our accomplishments. No really, what have we contributed to humanity? Reducing Manila population by the tens of thousands? Through government-initiated murder? By so-called Christians? </donvy>
