First Dalian train deployed

Commuters on Tuesday get ready to board a Dalian train at the Kamuning station of the Metro Rail Transport Line 3 (MRT-3) during its first run, as the China-made trains will only be deployed during off-peak hours from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The Aquino administration purchased 48 Dalian trains for P3.8 billion, most of which have never been used because of compatibility issues. 

This is the first Dalian train added to the regular fleet of the MRT-3 even as the trains arrived in the country in 2015.
