Every day Samson is sanded out as he is brought back up the hill by the shop. This cleans any goop or residue out of the smoke stack. It doesn't clean out the fire box though and this is what washout will deal with.
So if you stop by on August 25th, You will get to ride the Green Hornet, because Samson will be boiler deep in sudsy water!
