Potbelly stoves were often used in railroads and on railroad cars. When they were used they, they had a lot of safety features including skirts to prevent people from bumping into the stove and hurting themselves. It has a large mushroom lid you could use to cook on and it has a raised lip so nothing could spill off. Sometimes they had poles that went straight down to the ground so that you could actually attach it to the floor of the train car so that it could not tip over at all. Often times the draft controls locked so that only the conductor could adjust the heat and temperature within the railroad car itself. Potbellies are really terrific heaters!
