Welcome to the home page of the 'Philippine Railways Historical Society', which was set up to help and encourage fans of the Philippine railways.The PRHS main goal has been to research and share Philippine railway information, help others with a similar interest and answer the many questions from tourists heading there for a holiday. - My other interests lay in railways around the Australasian region (Australia, Fiji, South East Asia). For lots of information, forums and other items related to them, please check out LocoShed Australasia.
We are currently in the middle of a rebuild of the website which will be continuing through the first half of 2011.Plans are afoot for a section by section look at stations and infrastructure, latest heritage/preservation news section and updates on current rail operations and expansions.
Expect many changes as the society is placed through a transformation.
This website is in the process of change.
Gradually we will be making a more helpful and user friendly information source for people interested in the railways of the Philippines.
Started in 1999, when railway information on the country was scarce, the 'Philippine Railway Historical Society' pioneered in the local railfan movement and even went on to start the first ever railway preservation group in the country.
Imagine what we could do together in the next 12 years.
