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.

Semi Retired Foamer videos of the final weeks of this fascinating, and once very busy, Newcastle branch line. The first video shows a day's worth of operations, a month from closure. The second video is the last night, including the 
historic last run.

660/760 a month out from closure.

The last night of the Toronto train.
A party type atmosphere fills the air, as people steadily become more crazy, one chap even being arrested.
