I would say build your layout as you like it with your industrial north theme
and any small countryside details you can add. The main thing is to enjoy
your layout and if the final result pleases you that's all that matters.
Now where do you get an  N gauge Rovers Return ?

I think the Metcalfe corner shop/pub could make a good Rovers Return!  :beers: :beers:

Personally, Iím not trying to recreate any prototype reality (though I greatly admire those who choose to do so) and instead am going for a layout that I can enjoy building and operating. There are ghosts of places I love appearing here and there, and I hope my track plan seems at least vaguely possible, but ultimately, I just want to learn and have fun. Enjoy where this journey takes you and take all opinions with a pinch of salt (especially mine!). I havenít seen a single layout on this forum that hasnít inspired me in some way even if itís not something that I will choose to emulate. Good luck to you in achieving what you are planning and I am definitely intrigued to see progress.

Your layout, your goals, your enjoyment.

- Andy
