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.

Brattleboro, Vermont - Ash Pit
Ash pit at Brattleboro May 1954. Ed Ozog photo.
Here is an interesting view I have never seen before. It is of the CV ash pit at Brattleboro. Note the lettering on the CV hoppers...one looks newer while the other is almost weathered off. Edward Ozog took this photo back in the 1950's along with many more and has been nice enough to share them with us through various sites. When I contacted Edward he put me onto a lot more photos...more on this shortly...George Dutka
