scottish based 00 layout

hey guys thinking of putting together just a small layout to ease me back
into the hobby
was considering a small scottish esque 2 platform terminus station (going to
be expanded eventually so will go to a thru station along with a fuelling
point stabling for a couple of rakes of coaches and locos and maybe a small
private warehouse to shunt some vans into
space isnt an issue here (30ftx50ft loft) my problem is i cant decide on a
decent track plan
was thinking single track line entering the layout from fiddleyard
on the left passing a small private yard at the back of the layout from the
all directions given are as lookin from fiddle yard btw yard being the 2 the
left of the mainline which will continue down the layout past a few
industrial buildings passing by the fuelling point on the right along with 3
sidings for coaching stock and a couple of DMU/loco stabling lines
terminating at a 3 track 2 platform station
anyone care to tear to pieces? :)
if not give me advice all you's want i'm away to look at small industrial
shunter kits (any1 know a good kit for a class 14?
cheers

Or what about Falkirk Grahamston station complete with springfield yard, with the SRPS still in the old yard sheds at the Firs Park / Bison Cement side (prior to their move to Bo'ness) and the old NCL yard off graham's road with it's scarabs running around? Ah, childhood memories!! If only I had a big enough loft...... I think I can still just about remember the track plan of the yard. Badger.

Not sure myself - but if you go to

, then 'Wigan CRDC', then 'Locations', there's a plan of the EWS CRDC (which used to be Springs Branch shed I think) - Maybe you could adapt that as a trackplan and, as you said, bodge a through station on.

Vaguely remember visiting the Grangemouth "shed" once, 08's, 20's, 25's? and a 37 I think were there at the time, about 25 years ago. Could only take a very vague guess at a track plan though and it'd probably be wrong. I used to know a driver that stayed along the road from my Grandmother's house in Falkirk and he'd let me up into the cab every day at springfield yard when they arrived with the coal trucks and goods vans. He taught me to "hump-shunt" in a class 20! Once, he took me on a tanker train to Perth, then back to Springfield yard later in the day. I loved school holidays in those days, now I've got a 5-year old I always seem to be wishing the holidays away for some peace and quiet!! Badger.
