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.

Snapshot - May 2019
St. Thomas, Ont. 1987
Here we have the old section shed found in St. Thomas, Ontario during the C&O era. It was located just east of the large trestle that took the railroad over to the yard. The C&O had a large shop in town but the yard was built outside of town across a large valley. I actually measured this structure and published the plans in the NFR-WOD Dispatcher back in 1987. It looks a lot like a boxcar with car ends but is way too long. Might be a mix of a couple of cars...George Dutka
