Which railway company were the source of the 'LBSC' type wooden post signals that rise to a little pimple for the final/cap? Would it have been MGWR?

Did CIE or the Great Southern introduce tubular posts?

Likewise, which company provides concrete posts?
ND: Why is there a door handle on the inside of my airing cupboard?
MF: Because it's the fire exit from Narnia.

I like David Lynch films. I don't consider incomprehension to be a barrier to enjoyment.

I think, but do not have an immediate reference, that the concrete posts were manufactured at Broadstone in GSR times. Not sure about tubular, possibly a CIE initiative - need to research a bit.
