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.

Bli Bli Pies & Randy Ducks - It Can Only Be Moreton! Part 4.


The following shots are some I took of the works trains being used to rip up the Moreton Mill system. Taken on the 2nd of September 2004 at Philbrooks Siding (Bli Bli), they saw no use all week but were fired up for track removal on the previously featured 'David Low Bridge'
In the past I had little opportunity to photograph all this stuff, so many shots and measurements were taken.
If any reader can outline where all this stuff has gone to today it would be greatly appreciated. I will add it to a 'Where Is It Now' type listing for later inclusion on the site, along with credits.

NEXT WEEK: After Easter - a look at the last train to touch ground on the other side of the David Low Bridge!
