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.

Lurking Around Hurlstone Park!

MMM FM had designated it 'Gay Day' in recognition of this being the weekend of that Mardi Gras thing.
With this in mind, the Colonel wished to celebrate the event at Hurlstone Park and asked me to join him, ahmmmm, for train and woman watching only.
Sadly, the increased domestic responsibilities that come with being a father mean't that, despite much drooling, the Colonel didn't go across to the bottle shop to partake in some Bundy Bombs and remained in a 'highly unusual' upright position all day.
Anyway lets get into the all important train sighting information.
