Thanks for the information about Hahn's amazing model. I can't even imagine the amount of time, skill and resources involved.

Given that information, I plan to model what I can recognize from readily available resources and leave the other out until I can acquire more detailed drawings.

I came across the Brown's reversing gear which was said to be on the Olympic class liners:


I've spent some time researching its operation and studying the diagrams and came up with this representation:


I noticed that I'll need to re-scale and lower it to better match the photo below, and adjust the mounting design. Also notice the man's height which shows the size of these machines. He would not have been able to reach the reversing gear controls. That makes me believe there must have been some form of catwalk or platform needed to reach the controls:


Here are a few more renders.
*The lever on the left controlled the direction and trim of the eccentrics. You'd squeeze the handle and its release latch, then move it to the proper trim.
*If there were no steam to power the unit, the eccentrics could still be moved by manually pumping the lever on the Right (Shown sticking out at 90 degrees.
*If manual pumping was necessary, a valve (Shown near the center between the two levers) was switched to move the eccentrics to forward or revers.
-The bottom cylinder was the primary mover of the eccentrics. The top hydraulic cylinder dampened the movement to make it smooth. The top cylinder was also used along with the pump to manually move the eccentrics:



Please keep in mind that all of this is only my personal interpretations based on the information I have. A lot of other folks here at TM.com are far more knowledgeable than myself and I'm hoping errors can be pointed out. If the error is major enough then I'm most appreciative and to process the changes.
Thanks,
