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 16th 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.

Throwback Thursday - Too Early for Winter
Conditions definitely looked wintry in the yard at Stratford, Ontario on November 02, 2002.
By Peter Mumby.
the second definitely seemed too early for winter, yet this was the
view in the Stratford, Ontario yard on that day in 2002.
Goderich-Exeter locomotives came from a variety of sources. GEXR 3856,
for example, was still wearing the colours of its previous operator, New
England Central. GEXR markings had been stencilled on the cab side
below the window, but the base of the cab still carried the slogan "1995
Shortline Railroad of the Year."
