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 Changing Face Of 4896!

Continuing the '48 Class Weekathon' we take a look at 4896 during the very early 90s.
Nowdays 4896 is in the old blue Freightcorp livery and owned by Pacific National. However back in the good ol government owned days she wore two other liveries, the original Indian red livery and the shortlived 'Red Terror'.
Both shots here were taken at Port Botany, at the site of the former Beauchamp Road level crossing. The original livery shot was taken in 1990, with the red one being December 1991.
