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.

Mindanao LRT!

Exciting times in Mindanao.

A memorandum of agreement on the proposed Davao LRT has been signed by the Mindanao Business Council, Davao Integrated Development Council, MCC Capital Inc (A financial institution based in the UK) and local government areas in the Davao region.

It is expected that the new LRT system will serve built up areas of the coastline at Davao City, as well as Davao delSur and Davao del Norte. The system will ultimately be 60 kilometres in length and be a 'build, operate, transfer' type project.
