|Steering Engine Room|
|Hydraulic pressure coming through two lines from Central Station (220 feet
forward) operated a steam powered engine. The engine rotated a shaft that
went aft to the screw gear in the Steering Gear Room, which turned the rudder.
If the hydraulic system failed a manually turned wheel at the steering engine could operate the steam engine
The shaft going aft to the steering gear is on the left labeled "To Steering Station Aft"
