    I think the signals are Lancashire and Yorkshire. Later the spectacle plate was altered to contain two lenses. The L&Y was very parsimonious at that time and so the alteration did not involve a new post or altering the pivot point for the existing arm. That was why L&Y signals up to about 1912 had such an unusual appearance. (Also, weren’t the Samson class an attractive design to look at?)
