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.

Broden's Butter Dish Milk Cars
Seen in Dover NJ in 1949 from the Bob Bowes collection.
I was going through the Bob Bowes collection of photos recently and realized he had two photos of Borden's butter dish milk cars mixed in where I would not expect to find them. One of these cars I had not seen a view of as a butter dish milk car. BEIX 522 has been added to my list. Also, I have not seen many views of the earlier paint scheme (red) on these cars. My updated (2022) list of cars known to me to be butter dish cars are BFIX 503-508-516-520-521-522-523-531-534-537. It is good to have a proper number if one is modeling one of these cars...George Dutka
BFIX 522 is seen in Deposit NY in 1937. Bob Bowes collection.
