Welcome one and all to the 'Philippine Railway Historical Society' blogsite. This site was set up to share photos, historical pieces, comment and virtually anything else pertaining to transportation in the Philippines, with a special emphasis on rail. Occasional we vary from topic, but this is the less serious side of the hobby shining through - cause sometimes, in this miserable and uptight world, we just take ourselves a little too seriously.

If you have a question Philippine railway related, just drop us a line, maybe we can help.

THE THREE NEW PNR ARRIVALS

While we have been concentrating on the two new shunter arrivals, one of our dearest friends has been busy with the delivery of an arrival of his own.
Yesterday, all three of them were united for the first time.


A huge congratulations to Mark Chua (PRHS/PNR) and his asawa on the birth of 'Mark Zean M. Chua' who, at one day old, may turn out to be the Philippines youngest railfan (and hopefully PRHS member).

Really wonderful news, at a rather dark time in history.
So happy for you mate, your kids are so lucky to have you for their dad, as we are to have you in the hobby.



Wishing you all the very best in life Baby Mark.

PHILIPPINE NATIONAL RAILWAY'S
LOOK WHAT ELSE HAS ARRIVED!

Edited: 23:34 (20:34 Manila Time)  29/03/2020
Check back for more updates.

We are, again, very proud to be able to show Philippine railway supporters some more photos of the third shipment of brand new DMUs. 
Even more capacity for PNR passenger services.

Be ready to see them busy riding the rails soon.

Maraming salamat to all in the Philippines who have made these new railcars.

Terima kasih to INKA of Indonesia for your terrific work.
