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.

Throwback Thursday - Rubbing Shoulders, Too
CP 5630 was paying a visit to CN London East on April 10, 1998.

photo was made on April 10, 1998 at CN London East. I don't know the
exact reason why these two rivals had this particular get-together, but a
little speculation could be in order. At this time, the Norfolk
Southern run-through freights were often operated with CP power, so it
is feasible that one of these units had to be set off at London for
furtherance to the local CP transfer track.
