Steam engine

This is same engine I posted before, now tidied up. Somewhat curious in that the controls are at the LP end, and there is a drive coupling at both ends of crankshaft, could iit be from a twin screw ship, with possibly a dredge pump coupled to one end? Ruud, help please.

Looks just like the engine I saw in the maritime museum in Sydney a few weeks back, from one of the Sydney Harbour car ferries - Kanangra?

Possibly off a self propelled Bucket dredger, one coupling will go to the screw via a dog clutch and the other coupling via clutch and shafting (or possibly to a pulley via a belt) to the Top Tumbler.
