I don't know the area you are looking at at all. Is this two single-line branches converging on one station or the twin up/down lines? If the latter arrangement I'd be inclined to put a third line just below the two 'main' lines linking with the line into the engine depot, the industrial building and the sidings by the station. This would act as an 'independent' line to enable locos to come on and off shed without having to go immediately onto the 'main line' and also act as a headshunt for the goods yard and industry so shunting can go on while pasenger trains come and go.
Best wishes,
John Webb

As you say this is two single lines joining together, I'd reverse the cross-over by the right-hand signal box. As originally drawn there is no way a goods train coming up the righthand line from the fiddle yard can run into the goods yard or for a goods train to run out onto that line without some shunting about. I've downloaded your diagram - I'll try and modify it.
I note your signalling will be semaphore - I'll have a go at adding signals as well.

John Webb
