_ 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.. _ _ **** LOCOMOTIVE/ROLLINGSTOCK PUBLICATIONS **** - We occasionally publish information on the locomotives, and rollingstock, from railways in Australia and the Philippines. All are available forFREEat ourWEBSITE.

These short captions were brought to you by being in a hurry.
Over the years one builds up an extensive library of train related photos, timetables, documents and other stuff which basically does buggar all other than gather dust. In recent times I have wondered what to do both with these, and all the more current shots, locomotive news and other bollocks I come across while conducting my foamer business. Through this blog I hope to share a lot of this stuff and bore you senseless in the process. Along the way one hopes you will put up with my somewhat unusual sense of humour. Years of putting up with many in the hobby who, well, hmmmmm I suppose you could say lunatic fringe members, has given me more of a view of the hobby as something that is quite a joke. Certainly not the serious thing it once was. Hope you enjoy the bollocks conveyed herein.
If you feel like contacting me, please go for it.
