I wonder what ships Cunard had working the South American run after the War?

None; according to Bonsor's South Atlantic Seaway and Haws' Merchant Fleets Cunard didn't have a South American service.

If it didn't sink,it would be scrapped.If not,they would change the inside.Like make the boiler burn oil or other liquid fuels instead of coal.They could remove the dummy funnel,too.

with one boiler room shut down it could create the appearance a dummy funnel like one on Titanic.

Taking one of these things into warmer climes would be interesting. Troops from Australia and New Zealand suffered the heat below deck on Queen Mary and she was more modern than the Lusitania class trio.
