The New Park

The new park, Motor Grande, Puerto Rico, Motor Grande is named after an old English, Ruston & Hornsby engine that was taken from a redundant water reservoir in the village Motor Grande and put on display in the new park.

Earlier this month in Puerto Rico, an old Ruston & Hornsby engine was taken from a redundant water reservoir in the village Motor Grande and put on display outside a soon-to-be-opened supermarket in the Centre of the village.

The engine is a size 7 HR Ruston & Hornsby manufactured in Lincoln between 1929 and 1964. For many years the engine was used to pressurize the water irrigation system when the valley was still agricultural, before a bigger reservoir was built on a hill over the resort.

The village, Motor Grande, is named after the engine.
