Summer Update

Bruce Douglas built this CV milk car decades before any of the milk car kits became available. It now has a new home on the White River Division.

Although things are kind of quite here on the modeling front I seem to have been to a number of Model Railroad events and locations last month. Posts for this summer are looking good with Don just posting a part two of Greg Rich's layout and his creamery feature. Peter has a number of posts he is working on that should keep posting busy this summer. Peter also acquired the slide collection of the late Gord Taylor this spring. Gord mainly shot views from our area but was also a New England railfan making 13 trips to Vermont-New Hampshire in the 1970-1990 era with his good friend Bruce Douglas. I have just finished scanning some slides for posting this summer. I visited Bruce Douglas a few weeks ago. Bruce, an extremely good New England modeler gave me his great scratch-kitbashed CV milk car. I always loved this car which he build years before any of the milk car kits became available. I will cover this model along with a few of Bruce's others..check back from time to time and see what we are up to...George Dutka

  1. Thanks for the LVRC picture - cool to look at. Just 1 car, sounds about right by that time, unfortunately!
