That was a Worthington type SA commercially available. They also made the very large and flat type you see on many N&W steamers called a BL type.  The SA had a centrifical pump usually located on the left side under the running boards.
The large horizontal can looking ones usually on the top of the smokebox and forward of the stack were made by competitor Elesco and also had a pump on the left side of the boiler that looked like a cross compound Westinghouse (or New York) air pump. The N&W didn't use any of these.

 In this topside view of 1218 can be seen what I assume is the feedwater heater forward of the stack. Was this an in-house design or a product of an outside manufacturer?
