    The dome was moved from a forward position towards the centre as a new boiler barrel (about three quarters of the length) was required anyway. I think the "square patch" you are referring to is a rivetted strengthener for the seam on the new barrel section and is one one side only. Forward of the firebox crown is a round access "manhole" - a rather unusual but original feature on NG15 boilers.
