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.

Geoff Southwood sent me this photo of his MEC sign...here is his story...George Dutka
"Today, I was in our garage and realized that I
have a sign that might be of interest to show to your web followers or
use in your modelling. Years ago when I was responsible for overseeing a
fish plant and shipyard in Rockland, Maine I kept on driving by what
was by then (1988) a pretty abandoned warehouse. Spotting an
interesting sign I corresponded with Guilford and paid them $20 for the
right to take the sign down. Happily in exchange for a carton of
cigarettes or case of beer (don’t recall), a maintenance guy from our
plant took a ladder to the site and brought the sign down for me."
