They will both be done with code 55 flex track. I would like some shunting as it adds to the operation of the layout. The middle bit will be on the same level and be a factory of some sort. But you have lost me about the right side there are two nasty bumps in the wide turn and At the right there might be enough place for a screw-circle in a hill... Also the bit about It looks as if it contains an Inglenook and a modified Timesaver. Don't forget this if the very first time I have built a layout of any sort lol.

Sharp bumps... a tight turn, then a bit straight, then a wide turn.... this is not harmonic turn, but a "bumpy" one.

The inner part looked to me like a head station as you find them on hills...  like a branch line that climbs into the hills

Look up "Inglenook" ( http://www.wymann.info/ShuntingPuzzles/sw-inglenook.html ) and "Timesaver" ( http://www.wymann.info/ShuntingPuzzles/sw-timesaver.html ) these are two classic shunting layouts. The Inglenook is at the top right. Whilst the inner part resembles a Timesaver.

Thanks for that. I am starting to like the first one better now as it gives me plenty to do running it. Can you please explain about the At the right there might be enough place for a screw-circle in a hill bit.

I have done a few alterations to the first one and I am starting to like the possibilities running it.

I mean the track at the right that leads to the switch complex that you imagined an industry. You could let it enter a tunnel and with a spiral make it rise to a higher level.
Then the (now switched from industry to) branch-line head station would be situated on a hillside. This would then serve as a scenery divider. This hill or ridge could also cover the mainland forcing it to enter a small tunnel.
This is often used to model one side of the layout in a rural area and the other side in a city...

I have made up my mind (I think) that I shall be using the first plan as it give me plenty to do shunting wise and it also has a run-around bit if I just want to watch a train go round and round. So I shall be ordering the track next week and that's when the fun starts.
