There is an injector for sale on Facebook steam engine parts for sale.
It appears to be off a Ransomes Steam crane. It is the same as the one fitted to the crane at Swanage.
SN1 postcode.

I have just seen a video of a steam crane working in Pakistan.
It is on a Facebook site called Awesome Earthmovers. Sorry can't find a link.

Not 1560 or 61 Roger. The Cylinders in the photo are horizontal, and the handwheel for the brake or clutch is too close to the end. I would suggest it is one of the R&R 36t cranes supplied just before the war.
Possibly 1197S from Bricklayers Arms?

We worked to the original specification which gives 1.25 x maximum load. = 56.25 tons/57.15tonnes
The test weights came out at 57.8 tonnes which is slightly over but was as close as we could get.
