That… seems very odd. To have a dirt pedal after the delay. Also, I would say the signal path is inverted, the Wah would be the first one. I had a screenshot of an YouTube video where the pedalboard was a bit more vsible, I'll try to find it again.

Yea I've seen pics where it looks like he might go tuner>wah>line selector >chains, but I would think the wah would go after the line selector. It makes little sense to have the wah first as it could colour the signal into the tuner.
To me it makes the most sense it have the tuner first, followed by the line selector then breaking out into the different chains then out to the amp.
As for the delay and dirt order, there's no right or wrong there, it's a matter of preference. I have my delay before my dirt and I like it that way.
Oh, I meant, for Robert's sound. I'm pretty sure he has his delay after dirt, and before some, if not all, modulation. But as a general rule, I agree there is no general rule
I've been using a tube drive pedal almost at the end of the chain lately, almost as if it were an overdriven amp, and then I have delay before and after it, an use mostly volume control to back it up tp clean or push it to drive/distortion zone.

I read recently that Robert's legendary Fender VI was wired incorrectly at the factory, giving it it's distinctive sound. This was not known, of course, until a guitar tech looked at it many years later. I have a Fender VI and can do a pretty decent emulation of Robert's tone with a treble boost and chorus, but it's always close but no cigar. Now I know why!
