For those not familiar with signalling, I can see quite a few problems occurring when planning routes with single track lines, where passing loops will be required.

Building dual track lines would be the best option, for traffic going in both directions, from town to town, with single track spurs to industry. Even in 1850, nearly all of the main line railways in Britain were built with dual track, so this would not be unrealistic when planning routes.
