English term or phrase: Baker heater
This is the title of a book: The Baker Heater League (By Patricia C. McKissack and Fredrick McKissack)

Summary: This nonfiction selection explains how railroad workers called porters shared tales with one another. The porters would gather around a potbellied stove, called a Baker heater, to tell their stories. Legends such as those of Casey Jones and John Henry grew out of these stories.

I don't know if there's an exact equivalent in Spanish for this type of heater.. I think this may be a brand name, but I'm not sure. Any idea?
