The trip to Hondagua was one of the high points of our year so far. We thank Bill for providing the transportation as it was an all day excursion into some of the most beautiful parts of the Philippines. We want to restore the line car and not sure of its origina. It looks local shop made and the drive train is strictly automotive style with a transmission and gearbox to wheels and a spare set of cast wheels

I might add that we will be scheduling a meeting with certain officials of the PNR and they are receptive to "selling" us the line car for our use to promote Philippine railway awareness and history.
