RAILFA S GUIDE TO THE PHILIPPI ES
This guide is a vastly smaller version than the guide I originally proposed to do in a book type form. However it is much expanded to its first electronic version. The intention is to occasionally grow the guide and issue updated versions electronically, while a larger all time version remains a longer term goal, and in the proposed hard version. HOW CA YOU HELP Of course both this guide and our ‘Along Da Riles’ magazine require corrections, updates and any additional information. All our society publications rely on the generosity of people who willingly share information, and even funds, to benefit others. Future versions of this guide will include rollingstock and a list of items of railfan/tourist interest near railway stations. Any help and information regarding these two topics would be much appreciated. PO Box 181, Matraville 2036, SW Australia PRHS.Society@gmail.com

PHILIPPI E RAILWAY HISTORICAL SOCIETY Starting as the ‘Philippine Railways SIG’ in 1999, the society set up as a means to learn about the Philippines, share information and connect people with a similar interest. The group is mostly internet based, though we did go through a small period as an official group with the plan to help preserve railway items in the Philippines. With mass scrapping of the majority of rollingstock in 2010, the idea was set aside and we returned to our original purpose. Our magazine ‘Along Da Riles’ is the last link to these days and has taken on a life of its own. It continues solely through contributions by myself and a few significant other people who care. Our internet activities are vast. We are regularly emailed with enquiries both historical and of a more general nature and we are happy to help where possible. We have numerous websites accessible through: http://philippine-railways.blogspot.com We also have a number of Yahoogroup forums for sharing information and meeting others: PhilippineRailways LocoShed_Photography_Philippines Philippine_Modelling Philippine_Transportation Look forward to meeting you on a forum soon!

PHILIPPINE NATIONAL RAILWAYS PASSENGER STOCK
Line closures and suspensions over the years has seen a huge reduction in the amount of rollingstock needed. Second hand rollingstock from Japan during the last decade saw an end to the fascinating 7E cars built in Madras, while the arrival of DMUs from Korea in 2009, along with the promise of more second hand items from Japan lead to a mass scrapping of many classes in 2009. Despite efforts to preserve these important items, the last two years has seen the extinction of the 7A (Original), 7E, 7SE and MCBP class. NOTE: Not all classes are shown here. A small number of baggage and baggage/power cars are excluded and may feature in future issues of this publication. Clockwise from top: R-01 Santa Rosa Refurbishment (2009): The sole example of what was to be a project to refurbish all the NR class carriages from Japan. Famous bus builder Sta Rosa got the contract, but it did not proceed beyond the prototype. NR-01 sees very little use, mostly being used for special occasions like the reopening of a section of line. R Class: Arriving second hand from Japan in 2004, these carriages were classified NR, despite being identical to the 7A below, and were mostly used on services to Bicol before this service was suspended in 2006. Today they mostly sit around Manila awaiting use again. 7A/CAR Class: Arriving in the 1990s, the 7A class is made up of former Japanese 12 and 14 class rollingstock. Having spent many years both on Metro Manila and Bicol services, they have been largely replaced by the Korean DMUs. One very worn out set runs the daily Binan service, while five that had a small refurbishment done (CAR class) in Naga are usually used on the Bicol Commuter service. PC 286 Former presidential car of Ferdinand Marcos. This historic piece remains locked up at Caloocan, with nobody seemingly aware of where the key is located. Officially it awaits repair on the PNR register as of 2010. 7C Class: Nearly extinct class, the few remaining either used for works service or in very bad condition. CMC/CTC: Scrappings in 2010 saw the near extinction of these Japanese cars. A couple remain in departmental use (Manila, Lucena, Naga), a few more laying around Manila in various states of disrepair. Sleepers: Arriving during 2010 were a number of single deck and bi-level sleepers from Japan. Besides a small bit of shunting, and one mishap, these carriages await the reopening of the Bicol line in 2011.

PHILIPPINE NATIONAL RAILWAYS FREIGHT VEHICLES
Rail freight services in the Philippines are almost none existent since the cessation of the private container train from Laguna to North Port. The rollingstock on this page is used, if used at all, mostly for PNR operational and maintenance purposes. NOTE: Not all types and variations are shown. These are the main types, but there are some variations in crew vehicles (Lucena and example) and classifications across the system. Clockwise from top. TF/TC/TW Tanker Cars: A handful of these tankers still exist, mostly within Tayuman yard, but also one very well kept example in Naga. (2010). At last one in Tayuman was said to hold diesel for the railcars and likely the locomotives. The sole WT, currently isolated in the disuse Calamba shed, was used for hauling water. All were built in the United States, giving them a very similar look to others of their type in that country. GC Open Wagons: These open wagons appear mostly used for ballast duties, while scrap has been noticed as part of their loads during the clearing operations. Some are named for the Hondagua Division (see map). FL/FH/FSC/GC Flat wagons: All near identical flat cars, these vehicles are numerous in numbers from Manila through to Naga. According to builders plates they were built in Japan, the reasons for the multitude of different classes is unknown. BC Box Cars: In 2007 there were officially 35 on the books, however their actual numbers seem to far outweigh that. Today, although seeing little use, they can be found in yards over the whole system. At leat two have been converted for crew use. Made in Japan. FL Flat Cars with Railings: See above. Appear to be just a quick conversion of only a couple of the flat wagon types. FCD Guards Van (Caboose): These interesting vans may look very American, but builders plates tell you they were built in Japan. Underframes look virtually identical to the flat wagons above. They can be found in major yards across the system

This dormitory car is the last survivor of the many Metropolitan (UK) carriages built for the Philippines, it is also the sole carriage in the country with three axle bogies. It has been the subject of much debate, some believing it to be the former presidential car ABB-1. Photographs of the former ABB-1 show a much shorter carriage than the dormitory car. There appears to be no records kept for either carriage. This carriage is a preservation project.
