Its your railway and if your fine with that then great, but it seems like a short term solution to a long term problem, a bit like the real railway would come up with! (as you and I would testify to no doubt)
In my opinion, (feel free to ignore it if you wish) you need to weigh up the pros and cons carefully. When I first got a job and starting really buying trains (like there was no tomorrow IIRC), my dad said that I would come across a time when I would have to move one train to get another going. I suspect you will face that situation if you stay with that course of action. If you truely want four running lines and want to make use of them, you need to keep them free of obstructions.
I would suggest either, finding space for a fifth platform or some storage, or, going to a double track mainline with a four or five platform station, which might free up some siding or scenic space aswell. You could even do what I did, scenic sections on top level, storage below, if done well you wouldn't have to lose your freight sidings, or atleast not all of them.
Like I say, its your railway and your rules, just giving food for thought. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
Good Morning Sir,
Ive had a think about the storage problem, Ive decided to add a North facing bay, long enough for the required 5 car class 221.
