How big? 

The Bronx Terminal (and I'm sure other freight house terminals)..

Autorack Loading/Unloading facilities.

Niagara Falls has 2:
1 just east of the main yard for storage.
and another just south of the Wye on the east end of the yard. (Former Niagara Junction yard)
These were created by removing switches on one end.

I'll bet most stub end yards are created by removing switches on one end, and adjacent to larger yards or industry

There are two stub yards in this historic Minneapolis photo.



At the bottom right is an NP yard  (actually a bit of a combo yard but does have several stub tracks).  At the upper left there's another small stub yard.  The picture shows what looks like tank cars and other freight. My fading memory wants to say that's an old NP coach or commissary passenger yard but the year of the map I would have thought it would still be used for passenger.   :?

Much of the Milwaukee's Tacoma Tideflats Yard was stub ended.

The Ontario Northland (ex-CN) yard at Hearst, Ontario wasn't built stub ended, but it is now:

Some industrial examples from the Milwaukee Road Beer Line

Humboldt Yard


Cherry Street Yard


Commerce Street Yard (used to sort cars and trans-load).

Page 127 shows Shackamaxon Street Yard in Philly, which was constructed primarily to serve the adjacent Jack Frost Sugar Refinery:

The UP has at least 3 stub ended yards here in Vegas. One is by a cement plant, one is at a chemical plant and one is the auto/intermodal unloading facility. The first two both sit on pretty steep man-made grades.

Nothing says you can't make a double end yard into a stub end one. Just model the end you like best. You should be able to find a plan thru a Google search. Any yard is pretty simple to design as it's nothing more than parallel spurs & a switch ladder. It should have a runaround track so cars can be sorted out. Try not using any of the yard spurs for that as it takes away from space for cars. Put it beside the ladder or in front of the yard if you have the space.
