I think it is beautiful! The design evolved, with chain drives and gear drives like that one. I have a later model, a favorite of mine, in mind for a model.
I think the 'tie rods' are stabilizers. The huge gears behind the wheels would make quite a thrust on the wheels and the rods would counter act that.

Sir Vincent is the one I want to model and this pic shows a clear view of the gears.
