According to David Williams of Philippine Railways SIG, the rail ferry (3 feet 6 inch gauge) Virgin Mary formerly Aratika was sold to an Indian ship breaker for scrap. The rail ferry Aratika was in service in New Zealand from 1974 to 1999 before it was sold to MBRS Lines Philippines and was used to service the Manila-Caticlan route.
