The surviving bridge of the Ferrocaril de Manila- Dagupan (1st railway system in the Philippines)

The surviving bridge of the Ferrocaril de Manila- Dagupan (1st railway system in the Philippines) along MacArthur Highway in Barangay Dolores, Capas, Tarlac.

This bridge is more than century old (124 years old to be exact) for it was in 1892 when the said railway system was installed. The railway measured 195 kilometers from Tutuban, Manila to Dagupan, Pangasinan.

I urge the Municipal Government of Capas to make efforts in preserving this important tangible cultural property which is part of town’s rich heritage.
