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.

Palmer Mass. May 2015. An old CV boxcar still in use as an office and shop.
If you seen the Aug 2016 issue of RMC you have seen the re-purposed boxcar feature. One of the photos that did not make it into the feature, which I really liked is a boxcar currently still in use by the NECR in Palmer, Mass. I took this photo last May while railfanning the area with Don. It was still in use this April when Peter and I stopped by. This might be a scene I would like to model as a mini scene...may have to make another stop for a few more detailed views...George Dutka
