I note that Cowlairs Central has a warning arm below the Up Home

What I imagine was the Up Home is also visible, nearer the camera. It was a bracket post carrying full size stop and distant arms with a sub arm below.

I've also provided one for Cowlairs West Junction which demonstrates the need for Regulation 5. You will find them at http://signalbox.org/diagrams.php listed in the North British section.
I guessed right location and right reason, just the wrong side of the running lines. Do I get a sweetie for trying?
