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. _ _

For want of anything else to post, here is an insiode shot of a 7A in June 2009.
The carriage was still in use on the lkimited Alabang and Binan services being run by these sets at the time.
Our Philippine Railway Historical Society 'Membership and Promotion Officer' and part-time Bicol resident, Paul Hornby, is proposing the setting up of a Naga Chapter of the PRHS for the Bicol region.
While the ideas and goals of this chapter are still being drawn up, they wish to promote railway preservation/restoration in the Bicol area, historical research and perhaps investgate the 'Friends Of PNR' type operation in the local area.
Membership to the group would be free, with any restoration work funded by the community, the members and through the 'Philippine Railway Historical Society'.
News and updates would be available to members by way of a internet forum, overseas (outside Philippines) membership would still be done through the current PRHS, including 'Along Da Riles' newsletter.
If you are interested in a Bicol region chapter, have some ideas, or would like more information, please feel free to contact Paul.
For all your Philippine railway information photos and chat, please visit out HOMEPAGE! Our group and activities are free - we are here to promote interest in the Philippine railways, make friendships and help with information. We are not a fundraising group and do not ask for funds. Do you support the past and future of the railways in the Philippines? Come chat with us atPRHSYahoogroup.We look forward to meeting you.

The 'Philippine Railways Historical Society' was originally formed by the 'Philippine Railways SIG', with the aim to set up a museum on Philippine railway history in Manila.
We now act as a information society, having removed ourselves from the badder elements of the Manila railfan hobby, existing to meet and help others with similar interests.
Following much trouble over the years, we now have a zero tolerence policy (2012) for stupidity and the usual lies that go with dealing in these sorts of groups.
