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.

I am planning a huge sale of excess railway (and other) books, magazines, memorabilia, in coming weeks. Most will be listed on Ebay, the date that this will commenced will be advertised here, but the majority of items will be listed here (where possible).

Ebay sales will commence THIS WEEK (account davo1622).
Books prielist will be available soon for anyone wishing to get in early.
Initial 12mm models all now sold before getting to Ebay.


BOOKS - Australian - UK - USA - Possibly others.

MAGS - Large amounts of old Australian - USA - UK

MODELS - 12mm QR - Possibly others.
Cars / Other transport.

Rare original books that came with EH and EJ Holdens

BOOKS - Australia - USA

Changes of interest, reduced room and a desire to concentrate on other areas has lead to a need to downsize a rather ridiculously large sized collection!

The QR 12mm stuff I would be interested in. What do you have for sale ?

Huggs, I am not entirely sure at the moment but there is a number of carriages.
Only locos I am aware of are the never used 12mm 1461 (in gold) and 1400 (in QR blue obviously).
Along with most my 12mm stuff it has sat around awaiting a 12mm layout that will likely never get built now.
