4. I've made the assumption that left to right is "down", as there are more (entry?) signals on the right.
5. As an example, 1, 2 are the normal route, 3,4 are the (9,10) reversed route. Does this follow convention? I assume both 9,10 need to be reversed to prevent conflicting routes under block control? i.e 9 is the actual route, 10 is reversed to make the UL appear blocked.

A model of an elaborately signalled junction without a station would have been unusual and I found it difficult to decide on the juxtaposition of the crossover with any platforms.

They were actually located in Paddington Street but they added Baker Street to their address until the trading name change.
