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.

We occasionally publish information on the locomotives, and rollingstock, from railways in Australia and the Philippines.

Lue on the Mudgee line, back when it was still available for use.

Track vehicle in the dock platform at Young station.
This station is located on the, currently closed, line from Demondrille to Cowra. It is believed that part of this line, which will include Young, will be reopened for wheat traffic.

Having just run around, 3001 returns to Picton platform with a train bound for Thirlmere.

Back before her much drooled over restoration into the Indian Red livery, 42101 sat at Goulburn station for some time. She is seen here in the stunning candy livery.

Would love to hear from you.
