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.

Snapshot - November 2013
NECR southbound crosses the diamond in Palmer, Mass. as a CSX waits off in the distance.
Don and I stood at the NECR -CSX diamond in Palmer, Mass. while a NECR southbound crossed. We had just finished getting some really nice shots of the train crossing the diamond. I thought I would play around with the CSX train waiting in the distance. I decided to try my luck at shooting under the NECR train which was moving very slowly. It actually turned out better than I thought it would. One could not get that type of view around Ontario with track speed at diamonds being brisk...George Dutka
