BLRY does not have a long run and what we now have has pretty well maxed out what we CAN have in our space. But maybe we'll someday add a pass track to the west side. This will allow making up a train, running a given number of laps, Then doing a run-around on that pass track before running laps "back home".
Meantime, what we do have is proving to be quite interesting. AND...a remember, a limited size layout is perfect for adding details; The baggage wagon is the first of such and I hope there will be many more.

In all modesty, I'll have to agree, Ray -- The bridge shot is one of my all-time favorites.
This layout features "reduced size replicas" rather than true models and has "reduced size, prototype operation" That is, rather than doing "pretend" operation, we do ACTUAL jobs but in a reduced size manor.
Case-in-point: The gondola easily hauls an actual quarter ton of ballast and the locomotive is used to move it to where it's needed.
