M: I don't know how to put this to you, but trainspotters do have a certain reputation.
T: Which reputation are you thinking of?
M: Well... maybe for being a little bit dull?
T: I think you become involved to an extent that you ignore the real world outside. You come into your own little world and you have many people who join you in that, whether they're interested in mechanics, interested in the actual observations, interested in the operations. They all have their own little interest. But it means that we're committed to what we enjoy.
M: A little obsessive, then? You will admit to a little obsessive, would you?
T: I think obsessive, possibly, yes. Certainly not dull.
