    Glass windows on the forward promenade

    There is another post that talked about access to the A deck promenade. Toward the bow the promenade was closed off by a wall, with a window and a door. Unlike the Olympic which had an open promenade nearly all the way around, the Titanic had a different design where there were what appears to...

    Titanic Hull Lines Plan

    Are there any links where I could purchase the hull lines plan for Titanic? I already have interior deck plans, but I want to map out the exact curvatures for the purpose of digitally modeling Titanic. Any suggestions would be helpful!

    Staff Rooms

    Hi, me again. Does anyone know if there were separate rooms for members of staff? I know the officers had their own quarters, but were staff such as people who worked in the boiler room and people that worked in the restaurants kept separate? On the plans for the ship, I saw that there were four...

    Centre (or Center, if you like) of Gravity: Lusitania vs Titanic

    Looking at the profiles of the ill fated liners Lusitania and Titanic. I was struck by the differences in external design. Obviously, they told only part of the story since there were other factors to consider like position of the engines, boilers, storage holds and perhaps admiralty...

    WSL and H&W Distinctive Design Characteristics

    I'm wondering if they are any certain specific design characteristics of white star line ships that you see in most of their commissioned ships or a certain characteristic from Harland and Wolff. Most designers have a tell or signature characteristic that differentiates their style, I'm...

    What Did Titanic's Grand Staircase Actually look like?

    I know this is probably a rather difficult topic to answer, as there are no known photos of Titanic's forward Grand Staircase, but from some of my research it seems that there were some substantial differences between Olympic and Titanic's grand staircase designs. From what I've read online the...

    First class A deck forward cabin corridors concealed behind doors

    Here is my first ever post...after ten years of reading these wonderful forums! My question is: from the deck plans, if we look at the very first two corridors of the forward first class cabins on A deck (both port and starboard directly after the baized doors entrances), they are concealed...

    Stern Bridge

    When I look at pictures of the stern of Titanic/Olympic, I can see several structures on the stern bridge. But I can't say for sure what they are. I'm pretty sure I can see some engine telegraphs, and a phone box on a small pole. But do I see a ship's wheel? I see something that looks...
