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.

Alan and his favorite railroad. My Front Range geep in the background.
Today was a cold and snow covered day...outside chores are on hold so with some arm twisting I headed to the basement. I had a pile of magazine clippings that needed to be sorted and filed. As I went through them I came across a CN lines clipping from 5 years ago. As it turned out it was dated April 7th. As it turned out our old friend Alan Irwin passed away 5 years ago today. It is hard to believe how fast time flies. I always enjoyed receiving his e-mails and my stops at his home when in the area....we best make the most of our time...George Dutka
