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.

Montrealer at St. Albans
Amtrak 261 an E8 on the head end of the Montrealer on Aug, 17, 1973 at St. Albans. Gord Taylor photo
This must have been one of Gord Taylor's first trips to Vermont as we have yet to find any views prior to this date...at least so far while filing his slide collection. This slide views an Amtrak engine at St. Albans, Vermont most likely on the head end of the Montrealer...a pretty clean looking engine....George Dutka
