It would help the illusion if the signals (assuming they are meant to be at 'clear') were set in the upper quadrant that they were designed to move in.

The pictures and references that I have seen, seem to indicate GCR and many others were lower quadrant.  Maybe they altered by the time the 20s and 47s moved in, although I haven't seen any information to lead to that conclusion.

Of course they were, and had been altered by the 60s. My point is that those are nice models of upper-quadrant signals which, for whatever reason, are shown drooping well below the horizontal in a situation where a train is passing, giving the impression that something is seriously wrong.
