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.

Being an O scale structure an HO scale billboard sign works well as a large sign. The sign got some rust texture sponged on.
On this O scale model I detailed it up a bit as I usually do to most structures. The crate is a FOS kit that is simple to bend and glue. The WOD meet later this month will give one a chance to try it out. I added a bit of trash to it also. The vine was already on the side but looking pretty faded. Once the wall was repainted and weathered some fresh ground foam is applied. The plywood sheeting is actually a HO scale Roomettes offering I used as scrap sheeting...George Dutka
