Not too exciting but I recently saw it on the viaduct between Flinders and Southern Cross. It made me decide to go down market street and dread, I discovered the Railfan Shop had moved to Mont Albert.

Oh, I didn't notice this one.

What addle-brained little twats like you need to realise is that I am merely responding to someone else having a go at me.

Now, do me a favour and stop trying to insult me.  There is less need for contentless and gutless attacks like yours.

An absolute fluke here, but I caught T369-IEV102-T373 hooting through Kensington at 1:33pm... Was looking for the grain train, but it wasn't there

Some people say fascism and communism are the same but completely different.

You can say the same about railfans and graffiti vandals: both groups want to 'bag' a rare train and brag about it with their mates, but only one groups does it in a way that meets social norms.

(though you can't say the latter about the 'isms)
