Default Arabia's engines

Looking at the side view of the engine, it appears that the cylinder is supported on six tabs, three per side that rest in a saddle on the timbers. It looks as though the cylinder "floats" in those saddles and is not bolted to the timbers. Is this what is actually there or am I misinterperting what I see? (My vision is more than a little "impaired".) Seems like the stresses on the cylinder could cause it to jump out of the saddles if it were loaded heavily of if the wheel hit something solid. Also, is the valve wheel visible about the center of the cylinder the throttle for this engine? Pardon my ignorance, but the only way I know to learn is to ask.
