This is a new build. News from Beamish

SAMSON BOILER CONSTRUCTION COMPLETED…

Matt and I had a productive couple of days at Bridgnorth working with the SVR team on Samson’s boiler. This is now complete and awaits some attention before submission for a (brutal!) 320psi hydraulic test. All being well it will be back at Beamish in early December with a view to steam testing in late January.

Lots more, with images, on the link

Beamish has published a further update at December 8th - the boiler was subject to the insurance company hydraulic test (which it passed) and was then drained and collected for delivery back to Beamish.
