The "elephant ears" where Smoke deflectors (also known as smoke baffles) are metal plates that are attached to the sides of the smoke box on a steam locomotive. In the first half of the 1800's , the trains had very tall chimneys. There was no problem with the smoke. But when trains became larger; new lower, stronger bridges were built (not just for trains). This meant that tall chimneys were no longer an option. This brought its own problems like draft issues, but more importantly smoke was able to get down to the cabs much easier. This was fixed by installing elephant ears.
