Little Samson II Building a 6" Scale Traction Engine by David J. Kearley

cover photo

Following on from the great success I had with the publishing of my two-part series "A Dream Comes True", I have now built another engine!

This is my third book, this time following the building of a large-scale version of the Little Samson steam tractor as I liked the first one so much but wanted something a bit bigger.

It is being presented as an loose leaf publication in a smart ring-binder cover.

The book consists of over 200 pages in 17 chapters covering the project build, plus a technical section and some information on the original engine, firing, driving, aftercare and the first boiler test etc.

Each chapter is printed on very high quality 120gsm paper and is crammed with pictures and information.

The book was featured in the June 2010 issue of "Old Glory" magazine.

It is a professionally produced publication that originally went on sale in 2009 as a part-works, customers purchased the chapters as they were produced thus following the build closely with me. The reviews I have received from these advance purchasers have been excellent, I have posted some below.

Now that the engine is ready to rally, I can release the book as a complete works.

Code No. 015138, 208 pages, $59.00
