These train engines correspond to a batch of 217 produced entirely in Spain. They are of the type called Mikado, because of the construction and disposition of the axes, in a 1-4-1 way, a guidance front axle, 4 motor and traction, and a final axel as support.

However, this steam engine, remained active until 1984 as transport for the mines in Andorra (Teruel). In that same year became part of the Museum’s collection.

Currently, this model, serves an important educational work, which aims to visually explain both the inner and the operation of a steam locomotive.
