Here is my take on the signalling arrangements:

A few notes:

1. For a terminus, the distants are likely to have been fixed at caution.
2. The Outer Home signals would be positioned at such a distance as to permit station operations to continue notwithstanding acceptance of a train; i.e. at least 440 yards in rear of the Inner Homes.
3.  I have included yellow discs, as this seems to have been the practice adopted at Exmouth, which does indeed have a somewhat similar layout.
4. Again following the practice at Exmouth I have not applied a FPL to the engine release.
5. Shunting movements from  the bay and main platforms are controlled by the starters, rather than subsidiaries.  Again, this follows the practice adopted at Exmouth.
6. In the Down/inbound direction, the discs to the right of the main post both read to the yard, whilst the sole disc to the left of the main post reads to the loop.
