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.

the last couple of decades CP has operated TEC trains in several
different iterations. Each such train has consisted of a generator car,
a passenger car, and, bringing up the rear, the actual Track Evaluation
Car (TEC). Two of the earlier track evaluation cars have been featured
in earlier posts, specifically those of April 09, 2020 and July 14,
2022. Today we will look at the components of the most recent TEC train
as photographed by John Allen on April 20, 2022 near the east siding
switch of Longwood on the Windsor Subdivision.
CP 94 was the first car in the consist.
CP 93, the generator car, was in the middle of the train.
The actual Track Evaluation car brought up the rear.
Here we get a good view of the observation area of the Track Evaluation Car.
