It has to be the first one, the factory roofs are all wrong on the second one. They'd never have a pitch that steep, although (and I'm reluctant to criticise someone with your skill/record) I'm not sure they'd have a pitch quite as shallow as the second. Sorry!  :-[

I think they are North lights, which have a steep pitch and windows facing North and a shallow pitch with a blank roof facing South.
With kind regards

Second one for me. The roofline in the first looks too modern.

No right or wrong answer.. there are a lot of factors to consider:

What is the factory doing/making?? If it involves a process that needs a lot of water (either as an ingredient or for cooling) a large tank would be present somewhere on site.
Would the higher roof be beneficial for venting nasty fumes?
When was it built? (or possibly re-built) as per previous comments the flatter roof looks more recent.
Which way is North?? The roof lights were often orientated to let in the maximum light or to reduce direct sunlight if bleaching could be a problem.

Thanks chaps, perhaps I should not have take inspiration from an actual building, I think I may have to look at a third option - oh the fun of modelling :)

Many mills required a water tank larger than you'd expect for what they actually produced, the main reason for having a water tower, or so I'm told, is fire suppression for a gravity powered sprinkler system the amount of water the tank had to hold needed to damp down the premises for a set length of time to try and control things until the fire brigade could get on scene and finish the job.



with regards the original question, the first picture looks neater somehow, but the second picture has more chimneys and since I presume the layout to be in an industrial northern town, more chimneys the better, I also have a soft spot for north light windows, but somehow they don't look quite right here... sorry, not helping

Bargain time for me today, as I walked away with three carrier bags full of Hornby Dublo track, 198 pieces in total. I am one happy chap  :D

Look in the carrier bags for all that track, I normally find something unpacked when I can't find where I put it but know I bought it.
Or it's underneath something else.
If it's entered the filing system then look in the last place first, it's always in the last place you look.

Or ask on this forum, very helpful people here!

Paul,

Drinking Guinness will help you find your lost mojo.

Otherwise, go to Liverpool cathedral and pray to Saint Anthony of Padua (or give a few bob to some old biddy to go there and light a candle for you).

Goodluck !


Joe
