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.

Building a Wall
London, Ont. 1987, Warren Dodgson photo.
This photo by my friend Warren Dodgson views a string of old CN boxcars located in the back lot of an industry on Bridges St. in London which backs onto the main line and yard. I think the boxcars are still there today but well overgrown and out of view. They were set there to be the back lot fence. As a modeler building a wall using old unused boxcars for an industry might make for a neat scene...George Dutka
