What are you stuck with in particular ? 

Getting it running right I'm very slow on the uptake like the points. Change over I'm mixed up thanks

Suggest the following:

First, have a tidy up, no disrespect here, my model area gets like this too, so a clean up is always a good idea.

 Second, clean all track and wheels (meths, or lighter fluid better than anything abrasive), so stock runs well.

 Third, think about what you want from the layout. Eg, give a purpose to each siding, such as general goods, oil tanks, timber, minerals or whatever.

 With purpose for each siding, you can then make up an in coming train and shunt the wagons accordingly, with the outgoing train made up of wagons they are replacing. Having a card for each wagon that you can shuffle and draw out enough for each train can be fun too.

 Finally, allocate one siding just for sorting, otherwise everything will jam up very quickly.
