Little Shunting Yard

Hello everyone,
I drew a track plan for a little shunting yard (1' x 5'). All your advices are welcomed.

Make sure you can get the loco plus whatever carriages/wagons into the 'headshunt' - It's difficult to tell how long the line is to the left of the top point, it needs to be long enough to accept at least 1 loco and 1 carriage/wagon without fouling the point.

Nothing wrong with that if shuntings your forte. Not a lot of room at the top left.
However, is it likely to ever be built or progress other than asking opinions. As judging by all your other plans you've submitted under the three different user names you've had recently! Nothing seems to mature other than more simple plans and user name changes!
