Unknown German Slide Valve Engine

My latest project, as near as i can tell the engine is a very old Ernst Plank 425/3 Vulkan. I got the engine from ebay,
the boiler is from a Mamod SA1 Kit and the firebox has been fabricated from 0.5mm aluminium. After a bit more research
i'm now not sure what it is! The base casting is very similar to a Doll 337/2 but the cylinder is like an early Carette.

Here it is after having it's pipework fitted and a location tray for the burner. I have had two successful steamings
and will post a video shortly. One last addition will be a steam control valve. Video here. Second video here.
