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 15th 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 - May 2015
I caught up with NECR northbound at this neat looking overhead bridge North of WRJ on Sept 27, 1996.
I followed this NECR northbound train out of White River Jct. back in the fall of 1996. I was able to catch the train at a few locations following the local roadways and before heading up to the freeway to get well ahead of the train. I barely got to this location in time to get the shot. There is a pull over location just under the freeway which is right behind me. A view from the freeway would even be better but it was not accessible on my visit even if I had the extra time. I have modeled a similar style bridge on my layout at a couple of places and really love the scenes. I think I might once again try this location for a photo opp on my next trip to Vermont ..George Dutka
