Here is a prototype based plan for an industrial switching area around Wallula, Washington I am considering building. First up, a shot of the Cold Store warehouse that is served by UP from the east and BNSF from the south. Next is an overview of the warehouse with BNSF tracks headed to the wye on the left and the UP switching lead on the right.
The large Chevron plant is to the east of Cold Store on the prototype, but I had to move it above the warehouse on my plan. There are scenery options involving water as Lake Wallula of the Columbia River is nearby most of these locations.
There is another pair of chemical plants in the area around the Findley Cold Store warehouse that were potential customers.
And if you are curious, I live in Virginia, so I'm pretty amazed at what I could find about a pretty out of the way location via the internet. Keep up the research!  That is the only way to have a quality, operationally-sound railroad! Aisle width is set for 36 inch standard, with wider areas and a few choke points that may briefly pulse down to 30 inches.
I have drawn alternate plans with a J shaped peninsula coming down from the top wall, and another with an h shaped peninsula coming off the right wall into the center of the room. The lift out, unfortunately, is probably a must, as that is in front of a sliding door to the back yard.
Looking at your trackplan a bit closer, I have a few more suggestions for you that will hopefully help inspire you.
The Chevron plant tracks in the top LH corner should be where Hedges is if the layout were totally prototype based, but it didn't really fit there. The chip track layout in the paper mill is prototypical, based on a sketch drawn by a BNSF engineer and mailed to me with some photos. My minimum is an 18 inch curve, except on the north leg of the wye, which is a very sharp turn on the prototype, so I drew it in at 12 inches.
Maybe not all-time favorites, but I tend to enthuse about what is new and interesting to me. And at the always-interesting City Classics booth at Trainfest I acquired HO scale parking meters just as I remember them in my old hometown, available from Hi-Tech Details.
As for what details I really like, I don't think it is any secret that I am into working vehicle lighting. Although I have not built them yet, I bought one each of an Iriquois steam roller and a steam driven cement mixer from Wiseman Models. Take a look at all the goodies and I'm sure you will find something to get your creative juices flowing!
I have been looking for a conveyor for yearsm for my engine service ash pit!  Thanks Dave!
If you don't mind building kits, Rio Grande Models offers a variety of off-track machinery and vehicles, as well as some unique rolling stock.

Take a look at Vectorcut for HO tools,stret details such as manhole covers and a great line of resin paper laser cut letters for raised lettering effects. My old layout depicted a freelanced railroad running through Oconnee and Pickens Counties in northwestern South Carolina.
It's one of three plans under consideration for a 19 x 20 foot townhouse basement space. This plan has NO real mainline operation as the only mainline trackage is from Wallula into staging.
Potential reach issues in key locations for operators (Benchwork set to be at 50 inches). Is benchwork in bottom RH corner high enough and narrow enough to traverse wall over insert fireplace without inviting issues when fireplace is in use? Chips and chemicals go in from Attalia up top, and finished paper exits in boxcars on the lower RH side.
Still not sure the railroad in my design will be busy enough in an operating session to be worth the space, and am looking for ways to more efficiently design the staging.
Where do the tracks in the upper left corner lead?  Do they end there in a point-to-point fashion or is there more to this room than is depicted? The Wallula yard (at bottom right) stores cars for the paper mill and serves as a base for local operations there, in the industries in Finley, and further up the old Yakima branch to Kennewick, Washington. Much as I would love never to go out there, the garden needs tending and the grass cutting. Since we're dealing with N scale, 18" radii allow you to add peninsulas wherever you see fit and this location begs for some additional track! That is a third major industry, and I am counting the interchange between the two class I railroads and Blue Mountain RR shortline as another industry.
I wish the mill were on the other side of the tracks in real life, as it would make modeling it much easier.
I could also require the local to block other cars in the yard for unmodeled spots in the mill.
They are basically across the street from each other in real life, so a scenic divider, while usually worth adding, actually messes up the prototype flavor on that area.
I am going to try to redesign to add some of the main north of the wye, as there are two industries just north of the wye: one is another cold storage warehouse, and another is a feed mill for a beef producer. Since you asked about my favorite detail item, let me tell you the story behind my choice: My father was an avid builder of all types of model aircraft, even winning an occaisional award for certain styles of indoor flying models. While these can seem complex, the instructions are pretty thorough and the results are marvelous.
This one is pretty strongly influenced by the Finley industrial area, Boise Cascade paper mill at Wallula, and interchange between BNSF and UP in the area, plus the WATCO shortline that runs here and switches the paper mill.
Some elements of plan, especially at bottom, do allow for builidng in stages or adding on more areas after initial plan is up and running. Throw in some Blue Mountain RR shortline interchange and switching and there may be enough operations to keep a small crew busy.

They would become the empties returning to the yard while sitting waiting while the local switches the modeled portion.
They certainly could start in the Wallula yard, although prototypically they would come into the yard from the south after leaving the huge Hinkle yard at Hermiston.
Even with 18 inch curves, I want to avoid narrow aisles and a plethora of peninsulas that clutter the room.
If I go far enough I could end with the UP yard at Ayer, which held interchange traffic for the Camas Prarrie RR. While the family was sorting through his numerous boxes of items that he had collected before a massive stroke took him from us, we found a small box that once held a coffee mug. Era is modern, although I had to leave out a second cold storage warehouse and feed elevator that are north of the wye off the UP main because of lack of space.
If you click on the plan, it does open up an image that you can zoom in on but the file didn't upload with as much clarity as it has on my computer.
I envision the layout occupying 2-4 operators in a session, but also allowing solo switching.
There is also the huge Joso Bridge there as well, but it might be too large for a medium sized layout. I think it has a potential to be significantly different from the typical model railroad layout most people build. The models are almost entirely constructed with peel & stick laserboard materials, making assembly much faster. Inside that box, wrapped in a sheet of scratch paper was a couple of HO scale gliders that he had carefully constructed and saved.
I now have one of those gliders in an open field ,being prepped for flight- and the other glider stuck near the top of a tree at the end of the field. I remember riding them countless times as a kid when my mother would take me to the city with her. The BNSF engineer says the area around Cold Store nails the prototype setup, as a BNSF local comes in just to switch those two industries and then return to Pasco. Using good lighting, proper magnification, fine point tweezers, and taking care to properly align each part before they permanently stick together, you can now build a contest quality model of the Thrall-Door car in a couple evenings.In the late 60's Thrall Car Manufacturing Company came out with a new boxcar designed to make loading of high value timber products faster and easier. He had a knack of losing free flight gliders in similar fashion, so this seemed appropriate as a sentimental way to tie his hobby with mine.
Other ideas focus on main line running with several towns, but I wanted to try my hand at designing a layout with minimal mainline based on local switching opportunities. 56' overall with a 50' inside length, the car was trademarked as the Thrall-Door car and had 4 sliding plug doors on each side, making it much faster to load than a typical boxcar.By opening doors in pairs, and using forklifts to load from both sides, many lumber companies and railroads saw these cars as a better way to load, transport, and protect their products. Wearing the colorful paint schemes of their lessors, the Thrall-Door quickly became a favorite of both shippers and rail-fans.
