Engine Sounds


This week I’m featuring posts about the Titanic. This is from a website I came across.

Many of Titanic‘s passengers tried to discern whether or not the engines were still going after she struck the iceberg but before the call for lifeboats went out. If you were in first class, it was harder to detect. One author said it was like being in a room with a ticking clock. You don’t notice the ticking, but once it quits, something is missing.
Those closer to the engine room would have found it easier to discern.  Click here to hear the sounds and read more.
