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 13th 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.

Pt Huron & Detroit Ry.
No. 62 on May 28, 1975 at Port Huron, Mi.
Gord Taylor collection has a couple of view of PH&D Alco's...which I remember seeing many times on my runs through the tunnel from Sarnia to the GT yard in Pt. Huron. The PH&D shop was right across from the GT yard. In the late 1970's when I was laid off in London I used to bump into Sarnia and worked the spareboard. One of the jobs I seemed to regularly get was the tunnel motors. This job spent the day, or afternoon running cuts of cars back and forth from Sarnia to the GT yard in Pt. Huron. Pt. Huron was a busy place back then and there was always a lot to see....George Dutka
No. 60 in Pt. Huron once again in Pt. Huron on April 30, 1975.
