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.

One of the things in the railway, and Filipino, communities that I have long hated the most was the ability of people to draw a conclusion solely based on the opinions of another without given the second person a chance to put their forth.
While talking to 'Phil Buckley' last night I indeed realise that I myself was falling into the same trap and, regardless of what happened, this is not somewhere I really wish to be.
So last night I apologised to Phil for this and are hoping to meet up with him in the near future to discuss everything that has happened.
I am hereby removing all related items from this blogsite and all comments I can find on Facebook related to him personally and his time at Merriwa.
Not back to normal 'Semi-Retired Foamer' programming.
