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.

~~ FRATESCHI U5B ARRIVES AT PAYATAS ~~
Like so many other promises I have made in recent weeks, this one to put photos of the U5B model are well behind.

However finally today I got around to doing a few shots and resizing them to show here.

It is part of the PRHS Modelling Group's idea to build a small layout based on a fictional station in Payatas.

This model is a fair bit longer than the real thing (model size), but when compared to the Frateschi model usually used for the 900s, which is also longer, they may well look acceptable enough.

Anyway, its arrival isn't marked with an immediate model, it still requires much work to get it going. This will be covered in more detail on the PRHS Philippine Modelling Yahoogroup forum.

Below are three photos.
