Garage layout

For about 2 months i have been using my dining room table with a sheet of 8'x4' chipboard on top for my carrera go layouts,i have been using different layouts and buying more track but i have now got to the stage were i feel i need longer straights than 8' and mor elevations/tunnels/scenery etc.......
So this weekend i decided that 2 trips to the tip was needed to empty my garage of rubbish (it was used as a dumping ground after my house renovation projects and i could'nt bear to throw anything away as i new i would need it in the future)but in the end i bit the bullet and now have 12'x24' of space
,i was thinking of cutting the 8'x4' into 4 2'x4' strips and placing 3 end to end with the 4th at an angle like a large L shape.
Would this give me enough width or would 3' be better and a shorter overall lenght?
Any advice appreciated.

When I was building a table for my track in the shed it was suggested by a few here on the forum to have the table on wheels. I had a space of 12ft (3.6m) x 20ft (6m) to use but was limited with width due to my workbench, fridge etc on one side of the room. I ended up going with a table size of 4ft11" (1.5m) x 17ft4" (5.3m), installed castor wheels on all legs (10 of them) which allowed me to move the table in and out from the wall and allow access to 3 sides of the table. I still have plenty of room to move around and its still comfortable when the mates come round.
