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.

MEC Low-side Gondola's - Ertl Model
Peter Mumby and I built these two Ertl models back in 2011. I covered these models in one of my very early blog posts.
Here is an interesting tid-bit. A couple of weeks ago on the NEB&W facebook page John Nehrich notes that the Ertl gondola was based on the MEC 9 panel low-side prototype...something I did not know. John also includes a good Bill Brigham photo of the prototype. Bill's photo views the gondola with a white herald and lettering....George Dutka
