An Irish Survivor

Motor Rail 8970 is a standard 2.5Ton 20/28 model, despatched 23 Jul 1945 to Department of Defence (contracts), Parkgate, Dublin and thence to Baldonnel Aerodrome, Co Dublin. John Curran writes that this engine is still in use to this day by the Department of Defence in the Curragh Military Training Camp in Co Kildare Ireland. It is used to transport targets to the firing ranges. It still retains its original Dorman 2DWD engine.
