Probably a slot or release, such slides at Clapham C were blue but they originally weren't painted but were some sort of coating which may have limited colours available.

Not much different to Brent No2 which had a set of clamplocks during the latter part of it's life which had the lever painted black over blue rather than the more usual blue over black that is common in most areas except the ex Southern territory.

Although on further study of the photo of Blea Moor I see that the last lever (30) is only locked by 29 reverse so perhaps this is some testers idea of how a the lever that works the stop signal which also repeats the signal ahead should be painted!
