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.

~~ CARMONA LINE ~~

Sometimes it seems almost impossible to find photographs of trains on the Carmona branch. Not surprising really with only two trains a day that do not lend themselves to a easy return trip to Manila in he same day.

This absolutely awesome shot appeared on Skyscraper City and was apparently taken by Lindsay Bridge (an Australian I imagine as his Flickr site has some great old shots from here).

Today the line has had its service suspended (reportedly due to typhoon damage), the yard has become very overgrown and the station deteriorated, while CMC-375 has faired the worst, having since been scrapped.

I would certainly be interested in any other Carmona line shots people may be able to contribute.
