Train order signal - Bedford, Virginia

 Hello, all:

Please see the attached 1958 image currently on eBay which includes the
Bedford train order signal.  It is evident that the signal is located some
distance from the depot and is operated by semaphore motors in the cases at
the bottom of the mast.  Does anyone recall other N&W locations at which
the train order signals were activated in a similar manner rather than
using the conventional linkage to levers inside the operator's office?

Thank you,
