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.

Tayuman/Tutuban Photo Essay 2007 (Pt3)

*** Tayuman/Tutuban Photo Essay 2007 ***

OK, I have yet again been slack in my duties to update this forum, especially the long promised continuing on the 'Tutuban/Tayuman Photo Essay'.
Seems now days I am getting to the age where funerals are becoming more common than time spent on my beloved Philippine railways. Indeed, that awful work thing also seems to distract me from life's more important duties as well.
Well you need not fret no more my friends, because here is yet another installment in the series, with a fourth one to come soonish.



1- Tutuban station building and PNR headquarters
2- Shed of unknown use. Had carriages stored and was somewhat flooded in 2006
3- Large shed of unknown use. Its on railway land so was likely once used for rail freight purposes.
4- Rakes of stored freight wagons.
5- Squatters on PNR land.
6- Former turntable, now a rather large ands green swimming pool.
7- Station platforms
8- South end of carriage sheds.

Above is two views of 917 outside the Tayuman loco shed. We plan to cover the shed in more detail during future installments.

Something different to model.
