Lightbulb PDA applications (.pdb) on Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

Southern California Metrolink Trains (at www dot metrolinktrains dot com /lines /schedules) have schedules online for the PDA (.pdb) and for Pocket PC (.dat). Is it possible to use or convert either of these for use on the Blackberry? It would be great to have the train schedules on my handheld!
Thank you

This might not be the best way of doing this, but it might be handy:

The files .dat files for pocket pc are actually HTML files. If you download the files on your PC, change the extension to .html and send it your BB via email, you can open the attachment and read it.

I had done the same thing when I need the files on BB.

I know, it a very dumb way of doing it.
