The Semi-Retired Foamer has been a railfan since he was around 5 years old, oh yes a very young age, an 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 preservation overlords lead to an even greater decrease in my hobby participation.
However things have changed thanks to our small group of trusted mates, interest has returned, and now I have become a bit more involved yet again.
Over the years I have tried my best to further both the hobby, as well as the friendships that it brings. I have done this by setting up proactive groups both here in Australia, as well as the Philippines.
It is with huge honour that I am often considered the founding father of the railfan hobby in the Philippines (my second home).
I don't take the hobby too seriously and I am a friend to anyone who is good and genuine.

Let's Make The Hobby Great Again!
We occasionally publish information on the locomotives, and rollingstock, from railways in Australia and the Philippines.

It has been a while since I posted anything of any real use here, so I felt it was my duty to all my devoted fans, or fan, to put something up here and look like I have a really serious interest in sharing my existence with others.
Since my last posting I have done another research (thats what I call it) trip to the Philippines and got started on some model scratchbuilding of same. Not an easy task with no real plans and being so far away.
In between modelling sessions I have found myself gravitating towards the airport at Mascot.
For want of anything else to show, below is a selection of photos from my most recent visit.
