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.

Gilmore Fuels - Update
Another view of the garage included in the Full Steam Ahead kit.
In Saturday's post I forgot to mention a few points regarding the Full Steam Ahead kit. I began this project with What's in the Box No. 3, posted on Oct. 19, 2013. One can find all the parts included in the kit there. All the signs included in the kit are printed on thin paper. I decided to photocopy the signs and use the copies. The colour photocopy paper is more sturdy and I feel will stay on better. There was no loss of detail in the copies. The kit included black tar paper roofing which is made out of a good looking paper. I prefer to use the peel and stick roofing offered by BEST and Minuteman Models which has a texture that reflects real roofing better. Since finishing the kit I found my service station attendant I purchased for use with the fuel station. I have painted his uniform white and will include him at one of the doorways..George Dutka
