Current CVRHS Ambassador

In the current Ambassador, Stephen Horsley details how he built his F&C CV milk car kit. On the White River Division we see a F&C, CV milk car  in action at my local creamery. This milk car  kit makes a great model with a little work.

I received the current Vol. 20 No. 3, CVRHS Ambassador yesterday. What a great issue. Under the leadership of Stephen Horsley each issue of the Ambassador is getting better. The main feature for this issue is the CV milk cars. Stephen really spent a ton of time researching and charting the comings and goings of the fleet. I did have an advance look at the text as he wanted someone to look it over. The milk car charts are a treat to see and great to have. He also covers modelling the CV milk car using a F&C kit. A short kit review is also included in the feature.

There also is an nice modeller's article on Central Vermont Diesel paints by Taft DeVere. He covers the options of model colours.

I was really impressed with a photo article of the Ambassador coming into White River Jct., Vermont in 1953. Stephen explains each car of the six car southbound train. The head end car is a MEC passenger baggage - smoker for starters.

To round out the issue there are four great colour photos on the two covers. Whitney Maxfield covers the development of the CV in Barre, Vt. and I cover the Gallows signal in Willimantic, Conn.

This is a quarterly one might want to consider if you are a New England fan or modeller. You can check out their web site for application forms CVRHS Home ...George Dutka
