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.

Pandacan Sojourn


As is so often the case with this blog, the following selection of photos are a result of a request for, well, photos.
This time it was for photographs showing the area around Pandacan.
These are what I have located in the catalogued selection thus far, although I know I have quite a few taken looking down on the bridge from the nearby road. I hope to locate those ones shortly.

Anyway I hope these are of interest.

Demolition work had already commenced as part of the linkage project.

The approach to the bridge from Pandacan station with just a couple of the friendly locals we encountered.

The bridge itself is an interesting old structure which once
opened to allow the passage of boats.

We are unsure when this operation ceased.

Hopefully these photographs were of interest.
If you require photos and information on other areas of the Philippine Railways please feel free to check out
