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.

~~ CH - CH - CH - CHANGES ~~

Can't remember who it was that sung that song - grrrrrrr old age and mental blanks are a terrible thing.

DON'T you laugh, you will all know soon enough :-)

Still while many things change, I am glad to have recently remade aquaintences with a few of my earliest Philippine based railfan friends. They have cheered me up during what has been a very dark period.

Anyway there has been numerous changes to things the 'Philippine Railway Historical Society' does, so by way of an update:

1) The http://anz.rihspi.org website has been replaced. The new link viewable via our normal website of http://philippine-railways.blogspot.com.

2) The RIHSPI-ANZ Facebook site has been closed.

3) For those people on Facebook who would like to chat about the Philippine National Railways and share photos, there is a group called, not surprisingly really, Philippine National Railways.

4) Both the PhilippineRailways and Philippine_Transportation Yahoogroups can now be used to share photos. LocoShed_Photography_Philippines is thus rendered useless and is due to be shut down.

5) The RIHSPI-ANZ Yahoogroup is due to close shortly, to be replaced by a new PRHS one.

6) I personally officially step down from RIHSPI-ANZ duties in just over two weeks time.
To date a replacement here in NSW has been found.
I shall return to research and sharing stuff on the internet, while I will also be continuing the 'Along Da Riles' magazine for the Australian group and hope to improve it.

7) A revival of Lubricated Flange magazine?????
Hmmm despite rumours to the contrary, this was a very successful publication and may return in a vastly different format.

So thats where we are at - hope this helps to alleviate any confusion.
Perhaps you wouldn't have even noticed :-)

Take care all.
