He felt the shock. Then he saw "stop". The watertight doors went. Two greasers rang back to the bridge. The watertight doors were closed. He and his mate went up to the turbine room and down one of the escapes to let one of the greasers out in the after tunnel. They heaved the door up about two feet to let the greaser out.
5564. Did you do it by yourselves? - Yes, me and my mate on the other side of the engine room.
My understanding, he went via the ladders to the electric engine room to open a door at the afterside.
He was in the electric engine room, his mate in the room behind the electric engine room.
The greaser was in the after tunnel, there was one compartment between the electric engine room and the aft tunnel (actually there was no need for that rescue operation).
Scott did not said when exactly he went over to the electric engine room, it could have been several minutes after the doors were closed.After that he was busy opening six watertight doors.
He saw the telegraph in the main engine room, he felt the shock, and then the telegraphs rang "stop".
The watertight doors were closed.
Then he went up and down the escape to the electric engine room to let one of the greasers out in the after tunnel.
After he and a mate got the greaser "free" they had the order to open the WTDs to bring the suction pipe forward. Interestingly no one ever mentioned that the WTDs between the main engine room and turbine engine room had to be raised, the only doors mentioned were the ones aft of the turbine engine room and forward of the main engine room.
