Omagh GNRi Engineers Drawing

Recommended Posts

I spent some time taking high-res scans of the original engineers blue print of Omagh that was in Paddy Mallons archives in Dundalk and stitching them together to show the extent of Omagh and how difficult it is as a modelling layout plan. This posted version is low-res, the original is a much larger high-res scan.

Were you thinking of this as a home layout to build yourself or as a group layout?

The big problem with even a relatively simple junction like this is the effort needed to build it and to operate it to its full potential when it is finished. Probably much more likely to succeed as a group layout?

RichL, I've no plans to build this as it would be impossible to do as an individual. I am however extracting sections from it for my own home layout and focus on scratch building the entire stock to run on it. The Engine Shed, turntable, section of Goods Yard and several sidings are more than enough for me to cope with alone.
