It's full steam for Samson! Seventy-nine-year-old David Thomas Young has painstakingly recreated a 19th century steam locomotive with the help of one surviving photo.
David has spent more than 5,000 hours, over three years, building Samson at Beamish Museum, based on the original 1874 narrow gauge engine. Read all about the project at - http://www.beamish.org.uk/news/samson/
