13th Brigade Steam Knights?

By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning

None of those items would be hard to remove.
Shipping would cost a pretty penny, I'll leave them there.  ;)

Obviously the mechanical parts of an automated coal hopper atop it's bunker from an Invictus class Steam/aether starship. Probably old Number 13, the Invidius. Always wondered what had happened to the old girl...

Yes, Pretty sure from the Invidius XIII
The books I've cross referenced about the Invictus class certainly point that way.

Can't you imagine converting this into a home.  All those arches could be filled with glass.  Lovely.
