Yeah, that's roughly what it looks like. Mind you the original layout Did go through a small change during the 60's when the engines Daisy and Mavis came along. Two more sidings were created to allow extra storage for the engines and so that train operations can be carried out with ease. I've take a leaf from this and have slightly altered my fiddle yards to incorporate and extra siding to story the quarry trains. You can also see where I've marked the locations on which engine goes to which sidings.
This also makes layout operation much easier as with only one siding for the quarry was often quite tricky to work with and at times crane shunting was needed a number of times.
You will also notice over by the cattle dock sidings (CD) that a section break is installed. This was more or less done for the purpose of the layout's operation and to make this a lot easier for me when following the original operational guide.
