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.

John Currey Collection!


The above 'John Currey' shot shows the new destroyed Iloilo station on the 1st of March 1986. The shot was taken from the 'Princess Negros'.
Sadly, by the time of my arrival in February last year the station was gone. Locals said that it was destroyed by a fire and that very little was left. Some rails were tracable under nearby shanties while the huge former rail loop around the port (to the left of this photo) is now all roadway.
