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.

While this blog is a brand new section of the 'Philippine Railways SIG' website, we are already enjoying regular visitors dropping by.

I have long wanted to have a regularly updated news, photos, historical and views section as part of the SIGs activities and a recent experimentation with a blog site revealed this as the perfect way to achieve it.

2007 has been a great year for the SIGs 'PhilippineRailways' chat form with a membership that continues to grow despite much tension caused by a member in the last quarter. Regardless of net gerbils, we went on to have the biggest month since starting back in 1999. A truly great efort, highlighting the great interest there is in that wonderful country and its railways.

We thank you for joining us and invite you to contribute any photos, scans of historical documents/tickets, chat on the forum and anything else you think may be of interest. Your help will ensure both this blog and the SIG website will be able to continue promoting interest in the railways of the Philippines and preserving their history.

Please email us philippinerailwayhistorical @ yahoo. com. ph (remove spaces).

Thanks again, have a great festive season and look forward to seeing you back here in 2008.
