No. 34 is standing on the wagon turntable. Installed to enable a wagon carrying a boiler to turn and be moved into the boiler shop for working on - to the left.

I just hope that someone alters that bib cock on the front cylinder cover before steaming No. 34. With the handle underneath like that scalded fingers/hand is very likely.
