In response to In response to 17


          

This is getting to be extremely realistic, you're doing more for visualizing this than any work I've seen before!

Some observations:
-I think the catwalks are built just from rails & rods, no mesh. Omitting it will improve the visibility in your drawings.
-How about if the E deck entry steps down from sides to the level of the cylinder tops before crossing the back of the room?
-I do think the main stairs run from the top catwalk level to the middle then middle to the lower catwalk and do so between the back of the room and the aft room column. Then the lower catwalk to the floor section is between the aft and middle room columns. I think it accounts for one of the stairs that you have drawn on the outside of the engines. The first picture in this post is poor but I think it shows just enough of how the stairs descended. https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/community/threads/engine-crankcase-dwg-accessories-and-steering-engine.30643/ . The drawing is from The Shipbuilder magazine reprint. Reduced resolution drawings are also shown at Robert Hahn's site http://www.titanic-plan.de/i_HW_plans_e.html

-When you create the little step stairs that access the valve gear, add one over the crankshaft at the middle of the engine. It just shows in a Britannic shop picture and I think it was the shortcut between the pump areas and the starting platform area when things went wrong.
-You're being observant about catching the pipe from the LP exhaust to the balance pistons on top of the LP valve chests. The pipe extends between the two balance pistons too.
-The governor is on the aft side of the IP cylinder frame facing the aft LP cylinder frame. Maybe my article was a bit vague.
-I'd be doubtful about having windows from the engineers mess.
-The overhead gantry was chain operated, fore/aft travel, cross travel on a shared positioning screw and 2 hoists on the gantry. Some of the room plans give the general appearance.
