Hi Mark. Do you have a sketch of your existing layout.
Would help if folks can see what you have.
I'm sure you'll get plenty of good advice here.

Based on your posted dimensions, and what my sometimes fertile mind 'sees', I would propose a switching layout with possibly a seaport at the end of the 2' by 16' side, with some fishing shacks, some wooded areas on the 3' connector and a couple of packing industries on the 8' side. Lots of opportunities for variety here.

Will look forward to your actual sketch though.

Yes give us a scale drawing of what you want the completed layout to look like.
