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.

Don't hit me if this turns out wrong :-)

OK I believe the plan is:

An 11am departure (tomorrow) from port of two EL class to Pelton.
48 class will be on standby in case of failure. Not sure if that is a failure of locos, or the infrastructure.

Assuming they don't find themselves in Swamp Creek or similar, one would imagine this is the end of PN 48s on the SMR. Probably see the demise of the PLs to.
