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.

Tichy Stop Blocks
One of my two Hays stop blocks can be seen located near the Robertson Paper Co.
I purchase a Tichy two pack of standard Hayes Manufacturing Co. car bumping post. These were first made in 1926 and are still in use today. Once assembled I painted them at the same time as I sprayed my rails Floquil rail brown. I used some yellow chalk and Bragdon powders to finish them off. Guess I will see how they do when my engine forgets to stop...George Dutka
