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.

St J's Brake Dust
Approaching St. Johnsbury, Vt. Dec 2, 1965
Geoff Southwood shares this view of a string of 70 tonners downgrade into St. Johnsbury, Vt. back in 1965. Think the wheels are really heating up as they try to hold back the loads...lots of brake dust. Oh by the way Geoff that shot was taken on my 11th birthday...George Dutka
