In a recent trip to a school located near Daang Bakal, I took the opportunity to ask my passenger to take photos of what used to be a railway corridor connecting Manila with Antipolo.

One can only imagine how these places looked like many years ago when the Manila Railroad Company operated the Antipolo Line.
