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.

Hi all, as the 44 class celebration reaches the end of the second month of it, original, one month celebration, we present to you these wonderful historic tid-bits brought forth by Glenn Ryan (many thanks mate) from the innermost reaches of his 44 class shrine of rememberance.
4403s last run in regular service, Canberra oil trains and Flemington Market sidings.
Oh yes, treats to cause uncontrollable excitment in even the hardest of spark gunzel.
