Is a 9x5 an option? If you're a fan of running loops, the larger curves allowed by a 9x5 (pong pong table side)can really pay dividends. A26+ outer loop an 22 or 23 inner with more for inside activity.

Even if you stick with the original track plan, being able to space things out a bit will make for a better looking layout.
