The Semi-Retired Foamer has been a railfan since he was around 5 years old, a very young age when one really should avoid being involved with the gunzel community to any great extent.
After a few decades of train chasing, one decided to break with protocol and get married, thus leading to a severe cut in railfan activity.
Subsequent dealings with social misfits, lunatics, mental defectives and self-appointed experts lead to an even greater decrease in my hobby participation.
However things have changed thanks to our small group of trusted mate, interest has returned, and now I have become a bit more involved yet again. Having learned to laugh, with others, at all the more 'Moronic Foamers'.
.Oh the irony that lays behind that group name and the person who set it up..
We occasionally publish information on the locomotives, and rollingstock, from railways in Australia and the Philippines.

The mysterious tittie loco!

Ahhhh yes, the mysterious tittie loco as apearing in my first blog turned up around Sydney lately.

What these strange pictures on the side of 4497 mean has been a source of great concern for the local railfans who have never seen such things. Is Independant Rail selling watermelons? Are they supposed to be pillows?

Ahhh yes much confusion has been unleashed on the local gunzel community!

Perhaps one of the gunzel rags will hold the answer to this greatest of mysteries, a mystery equal in the railfan universe to the best Fox and Scully ever had to deal with. Perhaps the answer lays with your mum and the earliest days of your existence.

The Semi-Retired Foamer sensed the urgency of this mystery and hunted the offending locomotive down. It was found hiding, not extremely well, at the Chullora railway workshops. The strange scribings have been hidden from passing traffic and are only availale to the very fortunate few railway workers who frequent this location.

We may need to talk. There has been quite a bit of interest in a decal of this for models down here :-)
