A brand new, unsteamed Savage "Little Samson" traction engine, the work of a talented engineer - we had his 3 inch scale Little Samson and Savage "Universal Carrier" steam wagon in years gone by, all built to the same, impeccable standard.
I won't ramble on about this one, save to say that the boiler is by Bell Boilers - all welded with expanded tubes - the rest is down to the builder.
The pictures tell the story more eloquently than I can, although look out for neat details like the lubricators - fitted to just about everything that moves - and injector pressure gauge.
