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 17th 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.

Waiting for a Crew
CNR 9403 is on the lead of a CV train that is destined for White River Junction on the White River Division.
The headlight is turned off on a Central Vermont train powered by a pair of CNR units. It is being held out of Bellows Crossing just short of the diamond. I recently spent some time on the scenery in this location. The foreground got some long static grass while the field to the left is refreshed with Woodland Scenery ground foam. The roadbed has been re-ballasted with Highball cinder ballast. The original ballast was Woodland's gray ballast...I never really liked the looks of that ballast...George Dutka
