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.

Philippine Railway Historical Society   News and History!


The sister group to this one, looking at the railway (and other) hobby in the Philippines.
There are still railways in the Philipines and expansion seems likely.
Railfanning there is not the fun experience it once was, the growing numbers of security guard, and paranoia, has made it a little bit harder to conduct our pastime.
However, at least they are paid minions, unlike the self-appointed railfan nazis we ut up within Australia.
Better still, most seem horrified by the prospect of telling a foreigner what to do.

If bored, come and look at our PRHS blog, you may find yourself enticed enough to go argue with moronic security guard as a change from moronic foamers, and the groups about them. Hiya Greg.
