Lee,

Do you mean the two spurs at the upper left?

I was going to change that to three spurs that are just a little longer. 
If you look at the last photo of my second post I have an overlay of what I was planning to do. 
The overlay just uses Bachmann track sections since I didn't have FastTracks #4 pieces in AnyRail.

I understand what you mean about the escape track. 
I'll see what I can do. 
The reason they stop short of the back of the layout is that I plan on having a creek wind around from behind the spurs to the left of the freight station.

I agree on the other spurs being too close to the mainline. 
The short one looks better now that it is a team track but still not great. 
The long spur to the depot looks dumb. 
I have a small extension of the "mountain" that is at the end that helps and I may make it taller when I convert the "mountain" into part of the cut, 
but cutting it back some would probably be a good idea.

I need to think about your last suggestion a little. 
I don't have a lot of room for my buildings as it is but another spur of the mainline would be good.
