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!

~~ PROSPECT QUARRY LINE ~~

A lunch with friends yesterday lead to my partaking in a long desired plan to check out the long removed Toongabbie to Prospect Reservoir quarry railway.
Due to time constraints only the first section was followed, with a quick look around Toongabbie Road where all trace seems to have been removed.
This initial section now forms a path, with a shallow cutting being the most obvious sign of its former usage.
  Just beyond the former steel siding the formation seems to do a slight S bend before disappearing into factories.
It is planned to go back for a better look in the near future.
