    Welcome back Mike! Glad to hear that you are doing well and recovering. I like your track plan. The only question I have is whether the track section in the center is reachable from either side?

    Do you have a "wye" near by to turn the trains around to back in to the station? The original layout of the prototype is a double ended sidings that allow the train to pull through the station so that the passenger cars are lined up with the loading platforms. Using a stub ended layout, you will need the train to back in and allow the cars to be along the platforms while the engines are off the platforms. I also think the second design allows longer platforms, so it should be the better choice.
