Hi, are you using BDL168 for detection?
You can have either, its fine to run straight from one detected section to the next (via an insulated joiner / gap in the rail) or you can have a non-detected section in between. A set of points would be an non-detected section as you down want points inside a block.

What are you using to display the detection info? Software such as TrainController or just LED's?
Using Digitrax hardware with RR&Co TrainController.
