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, loonatics, mental defectives and self appointed experts lead to an even greater decrease in my hobby participation.
However things have changed thanks our small group of trusted mate, interest has returned, and now I have become a bit more involved yet again. Having learnt to laugh, with others, at all the more 'Moronic Foamers'.
.Oh the irony that lays behind that term.

4427 partaking in works train duties around Bargo on a very overcast Sunday back in the 90s.

About the only shots we got all day between the intermittent cats and dogs.


Up pass passing over the oldest railway bridge in New South Wales at Menangle.


4486 and 48112 shunting around the now closed Flemington Market yards.


Very early on a Moss Vale morning, 4484 is found preparing to depart towards Sydney.


Having just stopped in Taree, 4470 4495 and a 45 continue their journey south.



4490 and 4520 were only quite recently restored when they lead 4201 out to Manildra and back.



4498 at Eveleigh.


4423 and 27 sit around the Delec turntable. Neither survived into preservation or private use.


4498 at Broadmeadow loco.


4486 is turned at Cowra prior to her first run in preservation.


4497 4483 44222 on 7SP5 passing through Bargo. 4480 and one other ALCo would be added at Goulburn before continuing on towards Cootamundra and then points west.


New South Wales grand lady of the rails.
