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 14th 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.

Early Spring in Vermont
I took this photo last Spring while travelling through Vermont on Route 7. I was following the old Rutland Ry. tracks, now the VTR south from Burlington. As I approached New Haven Jct I saw the view above. Although I did not see a train I did stop here to take in this great view. What I find appealing is the layered look of the background. The tracks in the foreground by a pond. Next is a ridge of evergreens. In behind this one can see a nice looking barn. Behind this one can see a few misty gray layers of mountains. What a nice backdrop one could come away with from this view...George Dutka
