The best way to make this station be known again is to restore it and start doing it now. We should put importance on this landmark because it’s a part of our history. They say that we Filipinos are sentimental people, this just show that is true for those things personal to us, but for our heritage and history there are less concrete actions made.
Leaving many historical structures all around the country without any action on how to protect the landmarks will be a great loss not just for the country's tourism but also for the next future generation. The government should take immediate actions for this issue.
