In response to In response to 17


          

Hi Steve

I'm undecided about the stiffening of the air screen. It's the same as any ordinary upper deck bulkhead and ought to be fairly well supported by the decks. If it did need stiffening such as in the sloping lower part I wonder if light angle irons would do.

The catwalks seem like secret passages in a haunted house. Here's my guesses:



-Green services the top of the boilers. The access appears to be between the center and starboard inner boiler. The cross path on the top of the boilers is at the aft end just before the stairs up to the steam valve platform.
-Red is the exit upwards. Based on BR2 I think the tank top ladders are between the outer boilers. On F deck the path upwards wraps around the port side of the uptake. As you mention there is a door at E deck, there is also an escape at A deck. At that point a ladder continues up the forward wall and there is a doorway into the stack casing.
-Blue may just be light framing.

I should have remembered and mentioned that in addition to the air screen, the uptake is double walled. This shows at the boiler front where the outer wall ends. The outer wall was also known as the breeches. TTSM pg261-262 shows it ending just before the fidley top.
