FOAMER - 1) Someone who foams at the mouth 2) A Train Fanatic (Amtrak slang)
A train crashes in the Bayou. A woman lies injured in the mud. A rescuer reaches to help, then pushes her face deeper into the slime, recording her gasps on his portable cassette player. He's a foamer, a train fanatic, who tapes the sounds of dying.

Larry McBryde, newly divorced father of a young daughter, is tired of his bureaucratic job at Philadelphia's public transportation authority. Even trains, his one true obsession, are gradually losing their power to excite him.

But when fellow foamer Georgia Huxley pays five thousand dollars for a disturbing black market tape of train accidents -- the crashes, the explosions, the screams, the ambulance sirens -- McBryde finds his mission.

I must read for the train fanatic !!!!!!!
