Capas station  gained notoriety from the Filipino and American Prisoners of war, who survived the horrendous rail trip from San Fernando, during the Bataan death marches. Many smothered to death in the densely crowded cars, were unloaded and forced, although on the point of collapse, to march six kilometers to Camp O” Donnell. Here they were locked up and the brutality continued. The station survives today as a museum and collection of WW2 items, and a large plaque in a landscaped garden describes the events surrounding the area.
