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.

Goodbye Lake Paco!

According to 'Philippine Railways SIG' member Jaime, Hanjin has recently started leveling the ground to the left side of Paco station.
The area is to be used as their compound during the Southrail rehabilitation project.
One fallout from this work will be the disappearance of the now infamous Lake Paco, a largish body of water covering the tracks in the vicinity of the station.
The photo above, taken during a group trip from Tutuban to Alabang in February, shows Lake Paco in all her glory.
