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.

A CP Rust Bucket
An overhead view of my new acquisition.
I purchased this covered hopper this fall at the Kitchener train show from Chris Wright. It is a really nicely weathered car. Not sure why Chris wanted to unload it (maybe something to do with the new Rapido offerings out now) as he models CP through Northern New England into Maine...but I am happy to have it. I recall Chris telling me a solution which is actually real rust was painted on the car...George Dutka
