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 14th 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.

Two Tichy models ready to roll on Don Janes Green Mountain Route.
I purchased a group of completed Tichy coal hoppers from the Bob Bowes collection. They are really nicely built. Peter Mumby and I actually left with them all. I knew I had way too many so I offered two to Don Janes. These are how they look on Don's layout. Don changed out the couplers with Kadee true scale couplers and cleaned them up a bit...I think they look great. Photos are taken with my phone on Don's layout last week...George Dutka
