These were headers on each side getting steam from the jointed piping just aft.  The headers on each side were connected by a pressure equalization pipe from which pipes to the cylinders on each side were connected.  None of the N&W articulateds had “flexible” piping, meaning that the piping itself flexed.  They were all jointed.

  Good evening from the UK.

  What are the cylindrical items located above the main cylinders on the locomotive. They appear to be something linked to the steam or exhaust pipework.
