Year Built:


We have known this engine for many years and always been impressed by how well she goes. Completed in 2011 she was one of the first 6” Little Samsons on the rally circuit and no doubt inspired many more builders of the design. She is presented in fine fettle having been well maintained over the years and had a ten-year boiler inspection with hydraulic earlier this year.

The 6” Little Samson has proven to be a very popular design; it offers virtually all the practicalities of a larger 6” engine but in a much easier to transport package weighing in at just under 1 ton.

The engine is a particularly well made and sorted example, it steams freely and runs very well with plenty of power. The boiler is commercially made and as per the standard arrangement water fed through a crankshaft driven pump and steam injector.

As with all our ready to rally engines it comes with all the required firing irons, coal, oil and a days tuition included. Part exchange of all steam and vintage vehicles considered.


Important Note: We recommend when purchasing any steam vehicle to employ the services of your own boiler inspector for independent advice and not solely rely on previous test reports.
