Don't worry about staggering the track gaps.

DCC reversing units work by sensing the short created when the first wheels
on the engine bridge the gap between regular track and track controlled by
the reversing units.

Once the short is detected across the first gap, the reversing unit takes
action. The position of the gap in the other rail is irrelevant - it can be
directly across from the first gap or off set a bit - it makes no difference
whatsoever. There's no reason to go to the extra effort to stagger the
