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.

Polka Dot Diner - White River Jct.
Polka Dot restaurant as it looked in White River Jct. during the 1950's.
I had scratch-built this structure a couple of winters ago. I have not posted about it yet as I still need to add the proper front restaurant sign. It once had raised red lettering above the door the length of the structure. I finally found a sheeting of lettering that will work. Now I can finish this model as it was in the 1950's. I currently only applied a white sheet with a couple of Coke signs applied at each end and my sidewall sign applied over the door. This will be removed shortly...here is a view of how it has been used to date...George Dutka
