A southbound MRT Train on its way to the Quezon Avenue station
Metro Manila has at least three railway lines, under the Strong Republic Transit System: the Philippine National Railways (PNR), the Metro Rail Transit System (MRT), and the Line Rail Transit System (LRT). The PNR and LRT operate two lines each (Northrail and Southrail for PNR, Lines 1 and 2 for LRT), while the MRT operates one line (Line 3). As of November 2011, Northrail is under rehabilitation, the southern extension for LRT Line 1 is in the planning stage while the Manila Red Line, also known as MRT Line 8, has been approved and construction will commence soon.
