Hello. I couldn't find my previous thread on the topic so I started a new one.
I've been spending a TON of time sweeping up the finishing touches on this ER. I've been rendering a fly-thru of my boiler room #1 for the past month or so and I need to get this ER finished up when that's done. I plan to do a ER fly-thru as well.
I moved the telephones and boiler room telegraph to the rear center column. I think that's where it belongs. That freed up the forward column to mount the main telegraphs. I ran the cable conduit right up the forward side of the column and it turns to port at the top, terminating in the E deck wall, floor level. Please let me know if you really think they are wrong.
I had read in a publication somewhere that Olympic had a main (paraphrasing) central gauge board where lots of gauges were clustered. Do you suppose the renderings below could be reasonably accurate?
The gauge board is mounted upon the center column, the bottom edge about 7 feet off the floor. Never mind that all the gauges point the same or aren't labeled, I'll do that later. I figured a minimum of 6 gauges per engine. The others for regulated lines etc.
I am really wondering if it follows a logical pattern as would have been seen back then... If you think there may be too many gauges (or not enough). I am also putting a few gauges scattered around the room such as along the pump walls and back in the refrigeration engine spaces.
But yea there's too many modifications to mention them all from my previous postings. Here's a few:
*All vents are installed (As appear on the plans during the 1920s Olympic refit) *Blower motors inside the casing up to the boat deck *Major rework of all the pumps along the port & starboard sides including the refrigeration engines *Pipes are far more accurate (but not absolutely perfect) along the sides *All the shell ribbing have been reworked & replaced *About 40,000 rivets installed *New engineers desk is modeled from a H&W ship of the same period (Bill's cup remains) *Lots more
