    Baybayin is one of the many ancient Filipino writing systems and has been widely used by Tagalog domains.

    The train also features bugtong (riddle) and literary masterpieces of notable Filipino writers like Jose Rizal, Francisco Balagtas, Leona Florentino, and Andres Bonifcio.

    It runs for the whole month of September which is also the National Teachers’ Month.
