Omagh General Station was on the arterial railway route to the North West of Ireland connecting it’s capital Dublin with the port of Derry. For many decades the town also served as a busy junction to another important line from Enniskillen and In its heyday the station might be busy for more than 22 hours out of 24.
When the Derry Road closed in 1965, not only did Omagh lose its railway but the town lost a sense of community – of railway families who for generations lived in houses that surrounded the railway and provided steady employment. This book brings together the history of the railway in Omagh – researched over many years and told by railway staff who worked the station.
