I am currently translating a text concerning steam locomotives (from Slovak to English) and I am a little bit stuck on an issue with a certain part of a steam locomotive (in the red circle).
Is there a specific name for that part? Like some kind of plate which helps to rectify the steam?
My second question is directly connected with the first one. Thanks to this particular part, the locomotive got its name, with these parts symbolizing "ears", therefore, the locomotive is called "Ušatá" in Slovak, which can be literally translated as "The one with ears" or "The one with big ears". Is there a word in English that would perfectly describe this attribute?
Any kind of help/answer will be much appreciated. :)
