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.

Snapshot - January 2016
I have been here many times to catch a similar view, but this was my first time in the winter. Jan. 25, 2015.
Last winter after the Springfield train show Andy and I headed up to East Deerfield and Brattleboro for a quick stop. We actually arrived in Brattleboro just before the Vermonter arrived. We found a spot just south of town where in better weather would be a water shot. There was a lot of ice houses out on the ice but it was hard to find a location that one could see the train through the brush and stay warm in the car...I have seen many shots over the years from this location...with a few through the winter months...here is mine...George Dutka
