This is my first attempt at desiging a layout and any feedback will be much appreciated. I am modelling in HO and the dimensions are 7' across the top and 6' down the side all about 18" deep. The layout will be set into the corner of the spare room, access to which has just been negotiated with the domestic authorities. I have tried to incorporate freight operations and passengers services into the same small area. to this end i have used a slightly modified time saver shunting puzzle and a small branch line spur, possibly for passenger or maybe for a as yet undecided industry. The red line is where i was looking to position a platform and the area behind the marked area on the left side will be storage tracks. Any suggestions, opinions and comments are most welcome. Thanks for reading.
