Why do you feel the need for manual blocks?

Control multiple conventional trains.

Is there a better option?

No, your answer explains it.


 How many trains do you plan on having on your lower level... 2 or 3?

Will they ALL be traveling clockwise or counter clockwise?  It will be VERY difficult to have mixed directions because one or two will have to run backwards to accommodate the “odd” facing train, unless you add some passing sidings.

 

Planned on running 2. One per loop. One counterclockwise and one clockwise then if desired move them over to the opposite loop from what they are on.
