The engine room aboard Steamship
The steamers boiler room and the manoeuvering desk for two water tube boilers.
The manoeuvering place for the two triple expansion engines aboard the
Steamship Kapitän Meyer.
The big wheels just below the engine-room telegraphs are used to reverse the
main engines. The wheels have to be turned lots of turns to reverse the main
engines from full ahead to full astern. A small single cylinder steam engine is
installed on each reversing wheel to facilitate the turning of them.
This is rather common in steamers of this size.
