I seem to recall that there is at least one lady on this forum who posts from time to time.

I know of several female enthusiasts. One in particular has a great passion for all things '47' :lol: :lol:

They are about, but yes..in reality, this is a male dominated hobby and as far as i can see, it always will be. Though i hope to be proven wrong.

I saw a lovley lass :) out with her dad on the last railtour i went on.

There are females around, but they usually get scared away from forums by their reception...

I did see a mid-aged woman yesterday at Newport who had an A6 pad out and writing in it when a 158 pulled in. I doubt she was noting its number or anything, but you never know!

No... your not the only one....

Here in Holland I know 5 female railway enthousiasts. One of them is even known by ALL railway staff, so she made a couple of big mistakes. If railway personell sees her, then they have to call the police. Even I call them when I see her around trains. The other 4 are just normal ladies ;) and like trains. two of them work for the VSM in the dining coach. The fourht is a young lady loving trams, and does also like trains.

And I guess there are lots more, but don't want others know it.

I hope you can stand up to all those men in this little "whats that girl doing here" world of trains. ;)
