Ok so I have been playing around with the design a little and would appreciate more pairs of eyes to pick out the most likely problems electrically, and operationally.

Basically, anything inside the green area will be the scenic area so anything west, south and east of green is non-scenic. The top is the front aspect of the layout (low level). The green line is effectively the back-drop.

I'm not sure yet if the red central area will be sidings/depot or a station area. Most likely station I guess as the raised area to the right of it will likely be buildings, shops etc.

On Helix 1, I can't get the blue and pink lines to meet but in reality they will

The blue and yellow tracks will be high level (7" I think).

From the fiddle area, a train will emerge via the bridge.

Along the blue track, trains will disappear behind buildings. Same for trains on the yellow track, they will emerge from behind the buildings.

Time for a pint of Nigerian Lager now

Getting close to finalising the layout plan now. Maybe just a few tweaks here and there but essentially as attached.

The black line represents the back scene so anything outside of that line is to be non-scenic.
