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.

Twin State Fruits
WRJ 1953 view of Twin State Fruits and of course CV 602, Bob's photos collection, Bill Brigham CVRHS collection copy.
I have been working on an article for the CVRHS Ambassador about the Twin State Fruit structure and how I modeled it. I was digging through some of my views when I came across the Bob's Photos copy which I took a photo of at WRJ Glory Days. Bill Brigham was manning the CVRHS booth and collection. This view presents the billboard sign in very good shape. Too bad I could not find a full-size view of the sign from the 1950's. Looks like a reefer full of fruits or vegetables are spotted there...George Dutka
