County Mayo is rather lovely

As I'll be moving house next week I will no longer have space for a layout. I do however have a few kits to keep me going until I again have the Space. I also, of course, still have several sketchbooks to fill. Shown below is a plan for a layout set on the coast in County Mayo out beyond Louisburgh at the port of Roonagh. This has always been an idea at the back of my mind due to many holidays in the area and a general interest in the railways of Ireland, especially those of the MGWR. The track plan is loosely based on that at Achill with a couple of deviations. The buildings would be taken from those at Westport, Castlebar, Ballina and others. Track would be 21mm. 

Of course this is all just conjecture but once I'm back living with space for a layout then I can add this to the list of possibilities...unless someone else fancies building it first...

Sounds fabulous. While you may not yet have space for a layout, there sounds like plenty of opportunities to create a fair few pieces of the jigsaw puzzle for when you do. And, dare I say, it would be really interesting to see and read about how you get on with them too.

Yes I do like the idea of building up some stock, buildings and other bits so that, if I did decide to build a layout later on, I'd have the head start. As I say though, this is all very much a pipe dream fuelled by nostalgia and the Achill Branch book.
