Spanish Simplex

These photos taken recently by Daniel Perez show a nicely preserved 20/28HP at Torre de El Bierzo, in Northern Spain. This is Motor Rail 9706, which was delivered on 18th June 1952 via agent MacLaurin Morrison & Co SA, Juan de Mena 6, Madrid, Spain. The Motor Rail exhaust quencher gives away the nature of its industrial career, in the local coal mines. It appears to have been used by Carbones Viloria S.A and is now plinthed outside the company's former offices.
