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 16th 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.

One of details I added some years ago was a reduced size version of a Rutland phone box...or at least my version of one. It is located in my original layout room...will cover that layout at some point. The phone box still remains today but my old rotary dial phone has since been removed. Today I store my CD's in there which are also becoming a thing of the past. My old CN Gimili jacket rests on the chair below along with my old work grip which still has all my work gear in...I set it there when I retired and never got back to it...the current timetable I guess is now 5 years old...guess I should clean it out at some point...hope I don't have any lunch left in there....anyhow I like see it there when I pass by knowing I don't have to head out the door with it in the middle of the night...and the crew dispatcher can't get a hold of me since I removed the phone from the box...life is great...George Dutka
