I don't think the 'Board of Trade' who used to authorise railways to operate through the Railway Inspectorate would have liked it either. Almost certainly there would have been a head-shunt parallel to the main line and a trailing cross-over from the main line to admit goods trains. Has the advantage that the yard can be shunted without obstructing the main line and serves as a refuge siding to allow goods trains to be shunted aside to allow a passenger train to overtake as well.

PS We do have a 'Signalling' sub-forum within this 'Tracks, Layout and Scenery' forum which has quite a bit already on prototypical and model signalling.
