In response to In response to 15


          

That's the first time I've seen those beams portrayed, thanks. The view at the top of the engine is also good, reminds me of the shot at the top of the Ceramic's engine.

Lighting
Art's model reminded me of some information on the Olympic's lighting levels that Ralph posted from an old magazine, http://titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=100&topic_id=34848&mode=full . It suggests 30w lights on 8' centers and two 1000w lights. I suggested a translation to modern values of 15w (and 500w) in http://titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=100&topic_id=41480&mesg_id=41480 .

We also had a discussion on this over an engine room picture on the Lusitania. http://titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=100&topic_id=40730&mode=full posts 11 and 17. My feeling was that the photo was over lit for camera purposes. So bear that in mind in looking at this picture in the Olympic's engine room http://marconigraph.com/titanic/electrician/elec_110728_4.html . That's the forward center room column with the phones on it and the shaft forward of it is an electric winch for repair work.

Hoists
There is a bridge crane hanging from two rails on the ceiling over each engine for taking the cylinder heads and pistons off. In the archway on the side of each engine frame is an eye bolt rolling on an I beam from over each crank pin to the aisle between the two engines for taking the big end apart.

Catwalks
Your sketches are a good way to go over this. I started to check them and had a snag however, the room shape in your end view didn't seem to fit. Look at the aft facing view in this thread http://www.titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=100&topic_id=32082&mode=full . The beam appearance shown across at the lower deck level is likely just the reinforcement on the turbine room bulkhead and the feed heater is incorrectly shown at the wrong end of the room.

The top catwalk is just below cylinder top and then takes a small jog down forward of the aft LP cylinder.
The middle catwalk is mainly on the outer side of the engine. It is laid on top of the lower flange of the room I beams and only runs between the first and third cross beams. At the forward LP cylinder a stair down from the inside top catwalk services a short section running on the inner side of the engine to the top of the steam separators.
The bottom catwalk wraps around the engine rather than the room.

The Engineering drawings from the Linda Hall Library would really help here because there is a bunch of guessing involved.
