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..

BHP 103 

The artist formerly known as 4537

A selection of images showing BHP103 during her period working around the steelworks in Port Kembla.
103 was rebuilt from 4537 by Austrac in Junee. It would later go on to be sold to Patrick Rail, later falling into the clutches of that Pacific National mob.
Somehow she beat the odds and went to Balco. An unusual fate for any historic locomotive that has had the misfortune of becoming part of the Pacific National fleet.
Today, 103 is preserved in Tailem Bend.
