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.

B&M Athearn GP-7 arrives on the WRD
Another addition to the WRD fleet.
Yesterday a package arrived which Don Janes had arranged from Arizona. Two B&M Geep's. Don ordered two B&M GP-7's (one for each of us...better deal on two) some time ago from an area dealer. Mine #1555 looked great right out of the box. A few minutes on the program track and off to work it went. It sounds as good as it looks. It is amazing the difference a few years have made in MR technology...George Dutka
