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.

Snapshot - February 2016
A Green Mountain freight nears Chester, Vermont on Sept. 26, 1996.
During a fall visit I spent part of a day following the Bellows Falls to Ludlow, Vt. freight during the fall of 1996. One location that I decided to stop at is a side road within site of the highway and just east of Bartonsville, Vt. It is a really scenic spot with a nice fence in the foreground and a layer of hills in the background. For this photo I used my 50mm lens and slide film while taking in the whole scene not just the train, as I wanted it for modeling reference. I did get some close-ups of this train at other locations that day but it is always nice to back up a bit...George Dutka
