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.

B&M White River Jct. Yard
A view of the old B&M WRJ yard looking south on Sept. 27, 1992.
On a visit to White River Junction in 1992 I took this slide view of the old B&M yard from a location I had viewed many photos taken by other railfans years prior. Boy what a difference it was and it looks no better today. The tracks once housed a good collection of rolling stock and engines. A few more structures graced the yard also. On this visit one can see the old B&M yard office as the only remaining building and little else. Guess if you wanted to model this yard in the 1990's one need more long static grass than ballast...George Dutka
