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.

~~ PRHS - Naga Chapter ~~

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.

The idea is good to preserve the railways with route from Bicol-Manila. We can save more energy/fuel if the Filipinos will just take trains rather than their own vehicles but would it affect the bus companies?
