A rail enthusiast who follows a particular type of rail traction (for example Class 37 locomotives) and tries to travel as many miles as possible behind their chosen type of locomotive to earn the respect of fellow bashers.

They "bash" trains (travelling behind a specimen of their chosen locomotive class) for the purpose of their own enjoyment, they often lean out of windows to hear the engine noise better and often wave their arms in the air (in a manner which can confuse and send dangerous messages to railway staff) to show their appreciation of the engine hauling their train.

They are the arch-enemy of many rail staff who are not enthusiasts or bashers themselves as their exploits, can be time wasting - one wave bashers specialize in is waving his (they are rarely "hers") arm upwards to show that he does not believe the driver is applying enough power to make a suitable noise from the locomotive (despite the fact that it could damage the train if too much power was applied to quickly), this sign, to all rail staff means: "APPLY BRAKES", and this sign is often used in an emergency.
Train Driver: "I had a load of bloody bashers on the 1030, mate"

Other Train Driver: "Yeah, I had a load of them last week - had to dump the brakes because they kept waving their arms in the air"

Train Driver: "Pricks"

According to my Dad basher is a combination of a bath and a shower. It is when one takes a shower with the tub plugged up and then sits in their water and proceeds to take a bath.
The Geeze is so redneck that he believes taking a basher actually gets his penis tits clean after snooking the chicken in her glory hole.

In London a Basher refers to a cheap pay as you go phone. Generally the two types of people who use them are 1) Criminals who want to minimise the risk of having their phones tapped or traced, or 2) Legit persons who use one alongside a decent contract phone, maybe because they like to separate their calls/contacts for example splitting between business/personal or because they're worried about losing a phone and don't want to lose a nicer phone, for example if they're going to a club or if they are in a dangerous line of work.

The term Basher originated from the idea that one can bash the phone around without worrying because 1) The cheap phones typically used are usually simpler and more robust than more expensive phones so they are less likely to break, and 2) Even if the phone breaks you don't care about it.
I need to get a new phone today, nothing fancy. Just a basher. A little twenty quid Nokia will do the job init.

The definition often applied to extreme laziness. Stemming back to Syndey Australia in approximately 1985, 'bashing' was the new word applied to lazy people. Usually taking a day off work or sitting around the house can be seen as 'bashing'.
