Welcome to the forum!

I assume from the fact you are posting in this section you intend to go for '0' gauge or even larger? You may need to go round the loop a few times: what scale > what can I model > would that be better in a larger/smaller scale > what scale etc...

There are plenty of plans in various books, mostly for 4mm (00) scale - but these can be scaled up for the larger gauges.

Another factor to be considered is whether you will be running the layout on your own or if you have friends who will help - if the former then a simple branch line might be appropriate where you may have just two, perhaps three trains on the move at most, if the latter than you can consider a major junction station and/or city terminus with goods yard and the possibility of a number of trains moving simultaneously.

Best of luck - have fun!
