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.

Snapshot - January 2019
August 1971, Tom Nelligan photo
B&M Silver Hill station stop in Weston, Ma. is still an active station when Tom Nelligan took this photos during August 1971. I can't imagine standing on this weed and dirt platform in front of this falling down station waiting for a train. This was a time before the publicly funded revival began in the late 1970's. Today this location, a stop between Boston and S. Acton has a small platform shelter of the sort that the MBTA has installed at a number of lesser-used commuter stations...thanks Tom...George Dutka
