I'm wondering why your turnouts (in brown) are on the same block. In conventional, I could see this being an issue.

I figured it would allow a locomotive to be parked at that location. Is that a bad idea? Where should it be blocked?

No, not a bad idea. You just have 2 turnouts on 1 block. This means only 1 train at a time. With 2 turnouts, seems like a lost opportunity.

By the way, Jan's comment - "Each loop should have one more block than the number of trains you want to run on it" - is a simple but solid metric as you think this through.
