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.

Time Moves Forwards on the WRD
White River Junction yard is seen in this 1970's view.
I decided at the end of this modeling season to set out my fleet of contemporary equipment for the summer months. I counted about 30 pieces of rolling stock, two cabooses and 4 engines....or a lot more than I thought I had. The era is the mid 1970's for the moment. If I went back into the 1960's more of my 1950's fleet could be out...that might be next summer. Not sure if drones where around at all in the 1970's but it appears there was one flying over the White River Division back then...check back there might be more...George Dutka
