The signal box at Sal Dias station, North Retiro, on the metre-gauge Gen. Belgrano Railroad.

Like Alto Cordoba the box is built in the style of the Railway Signal Company, although their products were not normally produced in rendered brick, as this appears to be. It may be that they adapted their design for use in this country, or the boxes may just be locally built replicas of those elsewhere in the country.

Note the British lorry loaded with produce in the background!
