I'm planning my layout. It will be multiple levels. The lower two levers should be hidden railway stations. I finished one level now and I'm not really happy with the look.
There are a few constraints: Peco Streamline 100 must be used. They only have flex tracks. This is difficult to "draw" in RailModeller Pro. I had some challenges combining the turnouts to get an optimal distance between tracks. I used curves to make some tracks longer for longer trains.
I'd appreciate any tips for optimizations.

I was aligning turnouts and realized that this results into too narrow tracks. Thus, I need to place small flex tracks between them to get the proper distance. I think a "guide line" feature would help. Placing turnouts and then using the "connect with flex track" feature sometimes results into non straight layouts.
FWIW, I came up with an alternative which has a better layout IMHO. The helix is now on the left side and allows more freedom for tracks.
Once you have made connections to / alignments of other tracks in the direction of these dummy tracks, remove the group and design proper tracks.
