It was a difficult signal to photograph clearly because of the bridge gets in the way - but it wouldn't need a co-actor if the bridge were absent.
I know a model of that signal in 7mm scale.

I would go with co-acting starters on a single tall post. The lower arm at the usual height, the other mounted high enough to clear the bridge and any double decker buses that might be on it.

I'd never considered the issue of buses obstructing the view, but posts for co-actors were usually exceptionally tall. I doubt if buses were formally considered in the original calculations.
