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.

Hi there,

We have finally got PayPal up and going for memberships and donations to the ANZ (Australian/ New Zealand) chapter of the RIHSPI.
As a result we can take memberships from people outside Australia via this method (this does not include the Philippines) .

I plan to get more of our first newsletter reprinted in four weeks time, so any memberships recieved between now and then will obtain a copy, thus allowing them to get the inaugeral issue and so they have joined at the start of the membership year in April.

Membership to the RIHSPI-ANZ entitles you to:

1) 4 issues of 'Along Da Riles' each year.

2) Membership to the RIHSPI-ANZ Yahoogroup for group news and chat. You must quote your name and membership number when applying.

3) Attend any meetings of both the Philippine and Australian groups should yo
u be in town.
4) Join in any RIHSPI sponsored tours to railway locations and instalations.

5) Help preserve whats left of the Philippines rich railway history, both actual railway vehicles and in archive form.

Cost of membership for the year April - April.

Australia - $30

NZ/Fiji/SE Asia - A$34

Rest of world - A$36

** Note again: Interested people in the Philippines can contact the local group.

Your membership and donations help us with the important task of starting the museum and keeping us going.
Please consider joining us and help save Philippine railway history.

People interested in joining can contact our Vice-President and Treasurer Bill Sullivan.
