New small pantry closet layout

Well guys, it has been years since I have done any HO but just got a little real estate to build a switching layout. The room is a hair over 7' long and about 4' 7" wide and I can use both walls. The locomotive will be a H660 with DCC and sound. I will paint in NYC and it will be set in the 30's to 50's. I still have many old time cars and almost all buildings will be flats. The turn table is N Scale but about the right diameter. The track will all be DCC friendly 83 Walthers and flex but sectional Atlas was used to design the plan for size purposes. I am pretty excited to start.
Here is the plan. (First Idea)
PS. 15" min radius.

I have worked this AM on many of you guys thoughts and this is likely the end result. I have gone to all 18" radius and shortened the run around as well as removed the turntable. I really like this version.





PS the HH660 came yesterday and what fabulous sound it has. I plan to do a video on unpacking and testing before it gets painted.

This reminds me of a N scale layout in MR a long while back. I think it was called the Surfside RR. It was inside a closet with a water heater. The whole layout was rather high and you ducked down into a center hole. Of course your closet looks much bigger.
