Hi Steve,

That's really coming together. I can't wait to see the video walk-through.

For the stoking indicator size, I found this diagram that shows a housing diameter of slightly under 14 inches. It's not identical to the ones used on Titanic but the housing looks similar. I have no information on the telegraph indicator size.




I notice you show five stoking indicators per stokehold. I'm not sure myself how they were arranged, or the total number, but I wonder if there were fewer. There were 15 furnaces per stokehold (12 in BR #6), so there would have to be at least two indicators (assuming 8 numbers on each indicator wheel). There is regrettably little information on these devices in actual shipboard use.

You mention you might be adding fan controllers. These controllers were, I think, located at the same level as the fans, but there were handwheels and rods to allow control from the stokehold.

Regards,
Ralph
