Tumb – I’m curious why in your pictures you have placed two path signals in each direction – one at the start of the loop after the switch and one at the end of the loop before the swtich.

You only need to have two signals – at the end of the loop before the switch. Because these are path signals, the signal at the start of the loop is redundant and could cause problems. You could end up with a train in the loop waiting for the single track ahead to clear, and another train pulling up to the signal at the start of the loop, blocking the single track line, creating a stalemate.

Don’t place signals as shown in that image.
