Initially acquired by the Ferrocarril de Salamanca a la Frontera Portuguesa, this company would be absorbed by the Oeste company and later by RENFE. which moved these locomotives to the Mora la Nueva depot, where they were put aside in 1955. It was a very widespread model in the last third of the XIX century. At the time, it was innovative as regards older models because it introduced a tree-running front axle (without rods), what qualified it to higher speeds and specialized it in the towing of passenger trains on better profile lines as opposed to the 0-3-0 and 0-4-0 models.
