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.

OWS Rail Car - Sarnia, Ont.
CSXT transfer departs CN Sarnia yard and out the CIL spur to their yard with a CN engine in tow on October 19 2020.
On my October trip to Sarnia to visit Don and Jim I captured a few views of the CSXT handling a CN unit. It was a big transfer and I thought they needed extra power. On my November visit to Sarnia I mentioned this to Luc who is in the know regarding operations in the Sarnia area. The engine was actually on its way to the OWS Rail Car facilities located on a siding next to the CSXT yard. Luc mentions OWS is just south of the CSX yard office and loco facility and before the yard behind Imperial Oil refinery. OWS currently has the contract for CN engine servicing....George Dutka
