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.

Wooden Skids - Osborn Models
The two HO scale models, mine has the loads on top.
On our last work session for this season Peter Mumby and I finished the day by trying our hand at two wooden skids offered by Osborn Models. We each built an O and HO scale model. I was really impressed how realistic they looked. Once we figured out what we where doing the skids went together easy. The instruction sheet was not that easy to digest for two old guys like us. In HO scale one does not have to even paint or weather them although we did. We used some Hunterline stain followed by some PanPals and Bragdon Powders. I liked what the powders did to the skids....Check out my narrow gauge blog for the O scale versions...George Dutka
