Manual blocks on Lower Section of layout.

I wanted to post my layouts lower level plan to see if I am thinking correctly in creating manual blocks. I am wondering if I am separating them in a good place. Obviously, they are color-coded to indicate blocked sections.

I will likely put track occupancy signals in later but I'm not interested in automated running as I think the layout may be a little short on length for trains to follow each other. I could be wrong. But hey that's why I'm asking for your thoughts.

5' x 12' Gargraves track 054 Curves on the outer loop, 042 curves on the inner loop straight and sectional curves. Ross switches. Crossover switches are  #11s and the Spurs are 042.

Thanks in advance.
