I should have made my post more explicit.  My question is NOT about the introduction of Automatic Block Signals or Interlocking Home Signals of the Semaphore type on the N&W.  My question is about the semaphore ARM (blade) itself.  It's rather apparent that the first use of a semaphore arm the N&W was as a Train Order Signal... but when and where?  That's the information that seems lost to history.
