San Fernando Pampanga

San Fernando is one of the original large stations along the Manila to Dagupan railway. Opened in 1892, over numerous wars it has suffered quite a degree, until the north line’s final closure, and the moving in of squatters. Once possessing a wooden second story, and being a junction for numerous branches within the locality, today only the solid brick first floor remains. It is now empty and battered, once the local population of settlers were removed in preparation for the rebuilt line to Angeles and Clark airport. On the roadside, to the south of the station, is a monument for the Bataan death marches in 1942 and the Filipino and¬†American POWs.
