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.

Robertsons Paper Co. - Bellows Falls, Vermont
Web site photo of their production model.
A new kit has become available recently that is based on the historic Robertson Paper Company, Bellows Falls, Vermont. In 1881-82, this brick mill was built in view of the Bellows Falls station. It actually has been certified a historic site in 1990. The mill was serviced by the railroad into the 1970's. This kit is offered by Monster Modelworks which is located in Southern California. This kit is a reduced size structure that measures 9 1/8" by 6 1/4". It is 100% laser wood kit. Since this structure was near the station and in view of the freight house model I already have I thought it would make a good addition to my Bellows Falls scene. I just ordered one.
