Otago Central Railway [17]: Doigs

As I mentioned last time, Doigs is the first station up the Gorge after Clyde. It was a small station with just a shelter shed and a very short siding. Nearby was the ballast pit.

Drawing the maps up to this point has been quite time consuming. It actually took four attempts to get the aerial photo of the area properly lined up with the existing scenery so that the maps could be accurately drawn.  Still, it’s good to get to this point.

The work order has been to get the highway and railway and other bits such as farm boundaries into the correct place, and this will continue all the way down to Clyde. From there I will work back up to Cromwell to do the chainages and also reposition other elements such as the old riverbed, which is probably in the wrong place in at least part of this pictgure.
