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.

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'.

Old, and a little pathetic, but historical none the less.

Corner of Spring an Bourke Streets in Melbourne.
Z1-57 has since been scrapped.

W2 607 was one of the art trams.

Following withdrawal, it was sold to a private buyer in Brooklyn (Victoria). The electric were later sent to the USA, with the body going later.
It's current situation is unconfirmed.

Thanks to Gareth Lumsden
