I like your layout design. Nice and compact but.you will still be able to get a lot of action in.
Just like BillYo414 said, make the coke works a 2 dimensional background building.
One suggestion, the 4 track hopper storage area on the left side of the plan, turn that area into 2 separate buildings, possibly rolling mills giving your hot metal cars somewhere to go. Keep all track.as shown, but make the buildings large and long enough to cover part of the 2 main lines. That way the oval will "disappear" and make your layout seem larger.
