THE proposed railway will connect the assize town of Omagh with the city of Armagh, now the centre of all the railways in the north of Ireland. Joining the Londonderry and Enniskillen Railway at Omagh, and passing by or near Ballygawley, Fintona, Clogher, Augher, Aughnacloy, Caledon, and Killylea, the line will terminate at Armagh, there forming a junction with the Newry and Enniskillen, the Ulster Railway to Belfast, the proposed inland line to Dublin, and also the Armagh, Coleraine, and Portrush Railways.
The inhabitants of Tyrone and the adjacent counties will be thus afforded the most direct route to Armagh, Newry, and Belfast; while the distance between Omagh and Dublin will be twenty miles shorter than by any other Railway hitherto projected.
The entire length of the line will be about 35 statute miles.
The traffic tables show a return of at least 8 per cent. on the proposed capital.
The detailed prospectus and map may be had at the Company¹s offices as above, and applications for share may be made in the usual form, to the solicitors and secretaries, at their respective offices ; and to the following brokers :--Messrs. Bruce and Symes, Dublin; A. Montgomery, Esq., Liverpool; Messrs. Munro and Co., 41, George-street, Edinburgh ; Messrs. Cardwell and Sons, Manchester ; R. P. Clark, Esq., Bristol ; James Jamieson, Esq., Leeds ; R. Mortimer, Esq., Throgmorton-street, London, and Richard Stack, Esq.,Omagh.
