In response to In response to 50


          

Good Morning.

(1) Would it be possible for anyone to describe the recip engine throttle linkage(s).. Their position, shape (A wheel?) etc?
I understand there were also some maneuvering controls nearby, which a description would also be helpful.


There were a bunch of controls on Starting Platform:



1. Revolution counter - connected through linkages with crosshead of forward LP piston.

2. Levers for forward LP and HP cylinders drains, which were mounted on undersides of the cylinders.

3. Probably a wheel for Auxiliaries Relief Valve. Port side only.

4. Lever for Quick-acting Cockburn Stop valve on forward side of bulkhead K.

5. Levers for Emergency Starting valves. They were supplying steam to forward LP and IP cylinders. They were discussed in 'Identification of auxiliary steam pipes in engine room.' thread some time ago:
http://www.titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=100&topic_id=54420&mesg_id=54420&page=2&topic_page=1#54514

6. Wheel of By-Pass valve. This valve was used to control engines in 'low revolutions mode'. Because it was much smaller than Main Stop Valve, it was easier to control the engines during manuvering in ports.

7. (Not marked on this plan, but it was there) Wheel of Turbine Starting Valve, port side only.

8. Wheel of Main Stop Valve.

Levers 9 and 10 were mounted very close to each other.

9. Lever for operating Browns' Steam-hydraulic engine of Reversing Gear. (both sides)

10. Lever for operating Browns' Steam- hydraulic engine of Change-over valves in Turbine Room. Port side only.

11. Levers for IP and aft LP cylinders drains.

There might also be a lever for Main Stop valve drain, but i will not guess where that was mounted.

(2) Where exactly were the telegraphs located?

If we base on greaser Frederic Scott testimony - all four telegraphs were mounted on aft side of inboard columns of HP clyinders.

(3) Were there any central location for pressure gauges? I assume most gauges were located near the place it was designed to measure (Near a valve, critical junction etc)?

H&W most likely was not using a central gauges panels. I think gauges spread through the Starting Platform in places where route from junction to gauge would be as short as possible.

I would wait for Bill West and see what he have to say about this. Since he have better knowledge on all those details than i.

Regards.

Karol
