A Foamer Goes Nuts Over These Heritage Locomotives!

A Foamer Goes Nuts Over These Heritage Locomotives! | Train Fanatics Videos

A Foamer – A term railroad employees use to describe a railroad enthusiast / railfan and the railfan community at large.

A really funny, honest, excited rail buff seeing his first heritage locomotives that he was able to catch on video.

A true foamer, he gets surprised by the second engine (an extremely rare 1947 EMD BL2) that comes into view as the first engine ( a 1953 EMD E8) pulls it forward.

While visiting New York, this Pullman Sleeping Car employee captured his “forever” moment and gets us all involved listening to his comments as he films. The horns, the colors, the sheer presence of the these locomotives are enough to send him to orbit!

He personifies why we all love trains! You can’t help but laugh!
