Concrete Ties Production at PNR Caloocan

RIHSPI Weekend Trip: September 20, 2008.
Pre-stressed concrete ties stored beside Horace Higgins Hall, Philippine National Railways Compound,  Caloocan City.

RIHSPI members followed the rows of pre-stressed concrete ties and discovered the production area inside the Engineering Department compound of PNR.

Special thanks to Mr. Anonuevo for letting us view the production process. Mr. Anonuevo learned the production process from John Holland in the early 1990s.
