Welcome to the site.
I am sure someone will chime in with a bunch of help, soon.
While you are waiting.

We have a member who created a track planning program.
He has a free version, or you can upgrade for some bucks.
I never used it take a look?

I never used it so can't help you with it. I figured I would toss it your way. :smokin:

There is a sticky thread of layout designs in the Layout Design section of the forum. Several of the other threads the might ne useful as well. And the "My Layout" section is always a good source of inspiration.

Welcome. My usual advice to people starting out in N scale is to be honest with yourself about your modeling skills; and then look at what you can actually buy at sites like modeltrainstuff.com or hobbylinc.com. If you're downsizing from HO you may be disappointed at the choices. We're a friendly bunch here, so don't be afraid to ask questions. :)

With some things in N scale, you have more choices, particularly in Kato Unitrack. I will agree though on locomotives and rolling stock, HO has a world of things available that you may never see in N. Best wishes to the OP on his new layout and scale.
