In response to In response to 51


          

More excellent progress Steve. As a youth I walked through factories that looked just like your last picture, it's that real, complete with that ugly institutional green that was once popular. Your skylight lighting test is great, I didn't think the natural light would reach that far.

Our ship was brand new but here's a post of how a boiler room looks after 35 years of paint and wear http://titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=100&topic_id=40730&mesg_id=40823 . Notice how despite the black paint the ladderway is visible because its edges reflect as light grey. Sounds like an ambitious challenge for your surface and lighting settings.

The circulation pump had a hull inlet to the aft center of the scroll case and a riser from the bottom outboard side of it up to the end of the condenser. The forward end of the condenser had a discharge at the top out through the hull. For the air pump there is a characteristic "S" pipe between the water cylinders with the inlet pipe from mid bottom of the condenser going directly to the bottom head of the cylinder. There is no intake selection valve chest.

Thank you Karol for that excellent mark up. The throttle handles are a wheel with a spinning handle on the underside. The spokes slope upwards to the hub, there I think it acts on a foot long Acme thread on the vertical shaft to pull the shaft down through the mounting arm or let it back up. As you have described the turbine starting wheel is between, lower and inboard of the other 2 wheels. Its bracket is on the aft edge of the column whose inner slope has been mis-drawn here. The shafts operated by #4 & 10 run under the lower catwalk all the way to their bulkhead. The controls tallied on the mark up are the extent of the maneuvering controls.

Back to Steve, if you are thinking of the telegraphs and gauge board it may be time to add the big end service I-beam I mentioned in post #16 because it and the thought of lowering parts from places up on the engines will limit the places we can hang things. The floor between the engines seems to be the only place to put parts down during work. The service beam shows in Karol's drawing.

There are one or two pictures of telegraphs and gauge boards in the Ulster Museum's RW Welch collection but it is a lot of searching to catch them. Use keyword Welch in the Photos category, Welch collection sub category at http://nmni.com/Home/Online-Collections.aspx?1=1&DisplayListing=False&Cat=501658&SubCat=502130&Term=Welch to see all 4100 pictures or try technical keywords.

I like Karol's info that the telegraphs were on the aft HP columns. They will need a simple route for the bicycle chains that operate them. Are the gauge boards maybe on the forward HP column? Paul Lee has a text ad from Fournier's that claims there were many temperature gauges too, with a considerable amount of tubing to bring them to a central location http://www.paullee.com/titanic/BL/index.php 1/3 the way down the page just below the whistle picture. Outside of refrigeration I have not seen much of temperature gauges in marine work in this period however. The underside of the lower catwalk is another possible place for a gauge board.

One other item to put in would be a small (1.5' x 2' ??) stand up writing desk with a sloping top for the engine room log book. It would have a shallow drawer or two as well. And maybe a level shelf at the top of the writing surface for the Chief's tea mug .....
