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.

"Oh Good God" I hear you saying. Don't tell me he has photographed trams as well.
Well, yes indeed, when not out foaming trains on all their glory, one past significant amounts of time in search of their much smaller, street bound, cousins.
 Don't laugh!!! There was actually quite a lot of interest in these things until, well, until the dreaded' modernity' word reared its ugly head and lead to the horrid excuses for trams that we endure today.
  Back in the late 80s and early 90s one was a regular visitor to Melbourne and occasionally Adelaide where ones filthy lens was pointed at for more than ALCos and those lesser manufactured EMDs.
I hereby bring forth a small selection of tram piccies from these journeys.
If you are good and don't embarrass yourself immensely, I will bring forth some more in the short term.
Now, enjoy. Or don't enjoy. It's really up to you.
