Dear friends:
Here we got a especial photo with a Motor Coach manufactured by "Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Co." for the Central Argentine Railway, passing beside a tipical G.W.R. signal box, can you tell me where it is, because I can´t read the name plate!
Best Regards, Pablo

From what I can read of the nameplate it appears to be Cheltenham Spa Malvern Road West Signalbox

That's correct - one of the two longest signal box nameplates on the GWR (the other one being of course the East box at the same station!)
