Welcome, follow along with George Dutka in his journal which documents the additions and future thoughts for the HO scale White River Division model railroad and to his continuing historical New England railroad research. The White River Division is now in its 13th modeler's season. The "modeler's season" runs from November to April each year. Inspiration comes from the Boston and Maine, Rutland and Central Vermont Railway during the 1950's with additional posts by Don Janes and Peter Mumby.

RailroadKITS - Gleason Garage
Gleason Garage on display at the fall 2012 Expo. A structure with some appealing angles and sizes.
A garage based on a Jamaica, Vermont prototype
RailroadKITS new offering is a neat looking service garage once found in the area of the West River Ry., which became a narrow gauge subsidiary of the Central Vermont Ry. I saw this structure at the fall 2012 Expo in Lancaster, Pa. I liked the lines of the structure and took a photo of it at that time. I did not know it at the time but it was based on a Vermont structure that stood near the CV. At last falls Expo I had purchased way to many kits by the point I came across the garage to consider it, but I may take a second look at it next fall as I really do like the garage's appearance.
