There’s a few of us with signalling knowledge on here (me included), just ask or post a track plan and I’m sure people will help.

I will second that, I have a few German Signalling Books. Take some getting your head round as there are big differences between German and UK practice.

Noting your pile of boxes I thought that you may be interested in this picture from a minor railway in France.
