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.

Got Tickets On Yourself?

Yeah OK, I know I have been a little slack on the posting side of things just lately.
Haven't forgot the Tayuman/Tutban series - just a little busy totally rearranging the house and railway room.
Sadly ones asawa must be obeyed, which quite often does not leave much time for the all important hobby work to be done. Nose to the grind stone, less one wants sharp pains across ones botty caboose.

Anyway, in order to keep you enticed, below is a recent inductee into the famed halls of the 'Philippine Railways SIG' archive.

It is dated for June 16th, 1944 and appears to have been issued at Lapaz.
The traveler on the day was obviously headed for Sta Barbara. Can anyone tell me where on Panay this was?

This is a very rare find. I don't think it was 1944 though because the Philippine Railway Co. was monopolized by the Japanese Forces for military operations during the 3 1/2 years of Imperial Japanese occupation of the island of Panay.
