Hadn't been aware until today of the thread opened on RMweb, to which I'm not a subscriber. Actually, I see nothing on that thread which is at odds with my design, and I note that Chris Osment has also pointed out the possibility of the discs on the loop being yellow-banded.
I mistook which line was intended to be the main, so have revised my diagram by appropriate changes to the heights of the dolls carrying the starting signals. On the basis that the two routes into the platforms are treated as being of equal importance, I have also equalised the height of the dolls carrying the inner homes. Here is the revised version:
I haven't drawn in any lockbars, as I don't know whether these would have been replaced by track circuits in the period to be represented, but I have indicated the points that require to be bolted.
I suspect that the number of layouts having correctly positioned outer home signals - let alone distants - are as rare as rocking horse poop, having regard to the distances involved. No surprise, then, that many if not most signals will be offstage. However, preparing a diagram of the whole layout, whether or not it is to be represented, may help comprehension of the layout's operational capabilities and restrictions.
