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..

RETURN TO RICHMOND VALE


A must watch for any fan of Australian railways.
Marking the closure of Australia's last commercial steam operated railway in 1987.
A look at the line today, and a moment in time when a group of employees took off with locomotive 25 for an extended protest. Legends, the lives of whom were based more on principle than money.
