It is understood that the car mentioned
in yesterday’s issue as having performed
such splendid work with the Chief En-
gineer and the Minister for Railways on
their recent Northern trip, inspecting the
new coastal railway, is a 45 h.p. 6 cylin-
der noiseless Napier. This is the same
car that took the Premier through from
Longreach, Cloncurry, and across the
Gulf country. It is understood that this
Napier is the first motor car to perform
the two noted trips above mentioned.
