Some updates. Installed drip funnel from Larry Fisher of Fisher Detail Foundry. Relocated the water glass to correct position and size.

Just as a bit of trivia....the technical name for the "drip pan" is a "tundish."

Interesting. The drawings from Baldwin call it a Drip Funnel. Maybe tundish is European.

Tundish is basically any industrial funnel. The Pennsylvania Railroad drawings call it a tundish.
Basically I would be REALLY worried if all I got out of a gauge cock was a "drip!"
