Colonial Iron Horse identifies and discusses urban and regional development factors in late 19th to early 20th century Philippines by looking at transportation in general and railroads in particular.

It begins with an overview of early patterns of production and settlement organization, and relates these to developments in colonial markets, trade and transportation.

It tells stories of how railroads were planned, built and operated, how they influenced and in turn were affected by the growth of urban centers and regions, and how various technological improvements, cultural and economic practices, and political events from the introduction of automobiles to political conflicts in other parts of the world figured in these developments.

It discusses the strategic role of the railroad during the Philippine-American War, and the varying relationships between railroads and military bases and the production and distribution of key agricultural products.

These topics provide glimpses of an era when railroads were active agents of change, describing where and why railroads were built and how these were involved in stamping out in shifting relief the social and economic geography of Luzon.
