The Samson

The Samson
The Samson, the oldest existing locomotive in Canada. It used to operate from the Albion mines, which is now the town of Stellarton, to Dunbar Point, Nova Scotia. It has found a home at the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry. Engines did not always run on diesel fuel or electricity the way they do today. They used to operate on steam power.
