History

Following the introduction of rail motor services, steam locomotives were only used on the long distance lines like Manila-San Fernando and Manila-Legaspi, obselete locomotives like the Hunslet and Kerr Stuart class were sold at different sugar mills, the dieselization of the company in 1954 further declined the usage of steam locomotives, some classes like the Porter class were converted to haul ballast hoppers and some were left either rotting away at Tutuban or used as a back up for shooting films like the 1989 film Harimao .
