Give the first chain signal in a row an outstanding design

I took it from here: https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... 18#p104018

What you can see here really good is, that the normal signals are more outstanding than the chain signals. And if you look deeper you can see clearly, that the first chain signal in a row is most important, compared to all the others.

I mean these marked signals:

So I suggest, that this first chain signal gets a more outstanding design. A bit bigger, a bit ... whatever is needed. So that I see, that this first signal is, where the train will normally wait, to have the whole track free.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

I like this idea. I'm a sucker for overly-complex rail set ups, and more than happy to figure out how to get an intersection to work if I can. However, as you say the first chain signal in a, err, chain is more important than the rest and having it be visibly different would be nice.

Maybe having it on a pole or something would work?
