Yeah, just a general rail buff is RAILFAN but FOAMER gets plumb paranoid looking for a particular piece of equipment. Saw one up at 0400 this past week to get a particular heritage unit passing thru LIT

Wait, you're making fun of train people, don't we foam at the mouth at aircraft? Just kidding. I've always had a fascination with aviation since I was a kid.

I used why would I want to do this? I deal with aircraft ops all night. I'm still not a serious spotter but, I see the attraction.
Just off the wall, I had a boss that was just as fascinated by tractors like we are with aircraft.
