Careful what you wish for!
Seriously, the two spurs at the upper right, I'd put them together at the end with a turnout and just enough track for a loco to 'escape' from a head-in switching move.
I'd also not have the interior spurs end so close to the mainlines. 
Trust me, they look odd when you do that (I cut a spur on my own layout back quite a bit after doing so before the scenery went in).
You could also run a one-car spur to the mainline where it curves at the upper left, for operating potential 
(with a ramp for flat cars or along the side of the track for side loading for a boxcar).
