#55283, "Boiler Room #1 questions"
Thu Jun-29-17 10:48 PMby SteveFury

          

Hi.
I had opened a different thread about the coal bunker doors-
http://www.titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=100&topic_id=55257&mesg_id=55257&page=
But I realized I'm going to have more questions to here's a general BR#1 thread.

I've made some corrections to my room.
*The ceiling is different- Angled coal bunkers "wings" now exist on the after end, separated in the middle for the piping.
*The framing & stringers are rebuilt with new designs at the shell plating and the after bulkhead K.
*Bunker door counterweights are removed.

Below is the reference for my room shape:



I've spent countless hours analyzing the fragmented images and came up with this conclusion regarding the center-of-the-room framing and wondered your thoughts:



TTSM suggests there was a line of four cast-iron stanchions. The two center ones form an upside down "Y" for a passageway between the boilers.
Notice the large red circle.
That looks like a row of the described stanchions at the splitting point. However, also look at the two smaller circles. Those also look like stanchions. If that's so then there are not 4 but 8 stanchion points in the room.
I wasn't quite sure so I went with the 4 and placed them at frame 25.

Folks seem to like the renders so here are a few recent:











Do you suppose those straight & curved vertical beams against the WTB K would have weight-lightening holes punched in them as the ones do along the shell plating?

Plumbing has started with the main steam feeds:


Thanks for looking!

Well it looks like Photobucket now wants $300 to display images on other websites.

Sorry, I'll look into other sharing services and get these back up.

I have signed up for a free Flickr account to see if they can host the images there.
Let me try:

I haven't had very much time in the past few days but I was able to implement a few of the modeling suggestions posted earlier:





Looks like I may be back in business.
I signed up for a free Flickr account and uploaded those images to my Camera Roll and made them public.
Then I clicked on them to display them, right click and copied the location and pasted it here.
Seems to work, at least for now.

I have a few images of my BR1 project to share.
Been working hard at this, more to do:

Stoker level facing Port:


An interesting view out of the bunker tunnel looking through the passage to the reciprocating room:


Sight glass level (Orlop) facing starboard:


The ladder against the top of the coal bunker:


Down the side of the coal bunker:


I modified the boiler top access as suggested. The passage through the uptake had to be raised. There seems to be a discrepancy between the height of this passage between the BR1 end view in the TTSM and the common uptake photo at H&W. TTSM shows it much shorter than the H&W photo. I made the change to more closely resemble the photo.
A ladder was necessary to transverse the center "beam":


Ready to do the piping.
The valve position will change to avoid putting the handwheel through the catwalk:


An interesting view showing different parts of the room:


Thanks for looking,
