RIHSPI taking control of Skyscraper city forums...
As part of the RIHSPI plan to control the railfan movement in the Philippines, it would seem many posts on SSC that are critical of them, or PNR demolishing, and destroying potential heritage assets, are now being delated.
This group supposedly for preservation, seems to heading more towards a type of railfan dictatorship, something rarely seen in preservation circles, and if it does, such schemes, or the people involved, are doomed to failure.
Well meaning individuals have tried to make a difference, however these efforts seem in vain.
If one is to go to the Philippines to research their railways and infrastructure, it would be best to keep a low profile, as quite a few rumours circulate at present about blackbans, unwelcome railfan individuals etc.
How much is genuine PNR, or RIHSPI is a point in question.As it was pointed out, the recent destruction in Caloocan, and elsewhere, under RIHSPI's nose has left even less historical items to perhaps preserve, and enjoyfor future generations.
The end result for this power grabbing, and enforcement, is assets being obliterated, while the struggles to police peoples ideas, and enthusiasm are being consolidated.
