The statement though you quoted it correctly, is misleading. The ship's bell was recovered early in RMS Titanic's recovery dives. There is a sandpapery texture on the side that was touching the ocean floor where the bell had begun to change due to the contact. So, it had fallen naturally, and years before it was recovered. It has been on display at several of the artifact exhibitions, particularly Chicago to name one. If you look around the bell, you can see the subtle hints of the ocean floor's effect.

As for engine telegraphs, several have been displayed as well.

The quote you referenced is attributed to one with a position of anti-salvage, and the statements misleading others, I feel intentionally, to sway them toward the anti-salvage position.
