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.

*** THANK YOU ***

I know most of you probably sit there in your computer rooms, looking at NR class photos on the net and bashing the hankie box thinking that the quality posts appearing on this website just come to me so easy.

None of you probably give an ounce of thought to the hours I spend, slaving away on the keyboard, hour after hour, to ensure the stupidity and smut I bring forth is of a quality suitable for my very selective readership.

Lets face it, any old spark photographer could sit here and punch out a page of pedestrian gunzel porn. However I have more respect for my readership than to convey dribble to you week in and week out, I approach every new addition with the sort of style and finesse that only the Semi-Retired Foamer, and perhaps the makers of South Park, could ever hope to achieve.

It thus brings a warm tingly feeling to ones regions when an appreciative reader sends in a contribution for me to share with everyone. It not only makes me feel a little appreciated, but it saves me actually having to do much extra work for a few more days.

With this in mind I humbly thank Rob Parnell for this photo of an ALF in Perth.

I think it, more than any other photo that has appeared, pretty much sums up the feeling of your favourite blogsite - or perhaps even this one.
