Photo Extreme ODDBALL Steam Engine

Don't know if this has ever been posted on here or not but I found it on Facebook a couple days ago.

I cropped it and cleaned it up as best I could.

My Best Guess was that it was some kind of special Hoisting/Retrieving Engine ???

I Thought maybe like for WWI Tank Retrieval or something like that ?

Any Other Thoughts on it.

While searching for similar engines on line I found what appears to be an ARMOR PLATED Traction Engine.

Lots of unusual engines here, including the armored one at the end
