Is there a reason for not twisting the sub-bus wires?
I am planning a similar wiring pattern with a "N/S" main bus (twisted wires) and several "E/W" sub busses off the main bus. I had planned to twist the sub-bus wires as well (until now).
Given relatively short length of all buses, I was not planning on any snubbers. Do you recommend omitting snubbers if all runs are less than 15 feet?

You can put a snubber at the end of your undetected track. You can't put a snubber after a block detector as it will likely give a false occupied signal all the time.
As I build my new railroad, I am planning to run a booster district about 23 feet in each direction from the booster. I will twist these wires and put snubbers at each end. Along the way, I will have short sub buses that will have block detectors. These sub buses will not be twisted or have snubbers.
