C&O Steam Facility Question...

HI folks... I am not into the C&O, but someone over at an N scale forum has a question so I am helping him out:

I am hoping someone on here with more knowledge may be able to help me. I found this picture on the internet and I think this picture is taken of the ash pit. I can't figure out what the metal funnel was used for that is connected to the smoke stack. My best guess is that it helped catch hot embers during the ash dump procedure.

Thanks
Robert
