Hello everyone!
I am a new member to this forum, but I have been a member of sister-forum Jetphotos for over a year now. I have a wide interest in the field of transport, mainly aviation, but because I come from a long line of railroaders (grandfather does and has worked for Union Switch & Signal for 40+ years), I have always had a vague interest in the railways. I am very ignorant in the subject, though, and hope that my time here will foster and promote my interest in railroads.
Cheers All!

Thanks for the welcome, both of you!
And Andrew, I'm sure any site run by Chris couldn't be anything less than top-notch! I anticipate this one to be no different.

We also call foamers FRN's.

Maybe they are FPN's or FALN's...

Are they all related to F.R.E.D.?

That'd be quite a stunt...I guess I'll be working on that for a while, considering that I am not good at photographing planes alone...

Actually, it's already been done at least one time I can recall over at our sister site named "JetPhotos.Net" (aka, the friendly way to fly)

http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=483135

I think it would behoove that gentleman to upload that photo over here.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! da-DAAAAAAAAA!!!!
