The Titanic's Legendary Engines in MOC Brick——Enginediyshop
In the realm of maritime history, few names evoke as much intrigue and fascination as the RMS Titanic. This British royal liner was part of the illustrious White Star Line, and during its era, it held the prestigious title of the world's largest ship. A remarkable engineering feat of its time, the Titanic was not only famous for its grandeur but also for its impressive engines, which powered this maritime giant.
Titanic's Mighty Engines: A Marvel of Engineering
The Titanic was equipped with three main engines: two reciprocating four-cylinder triple-expansion steam engines and one low-pressure steam turbine engine, all expertly crafted by the Belfast shipyard of Harland & Wolff. These engines were not just powerful; they were a testament to engineering ingenuity.
The two reciprocating engines produced a combined total of 30,000 brake horsepower (bhp), while the steam turbine engine contributed an additional 16,000 bhp. White Star Line had previously employed this engine combination on the passenger ship Laurentic, and it proved to be a winning formula. By combining reciprocating engines with steam turbines, they achieved both fuel efficiency and power, ensuring a smooth and comfortable voyage for passengers.

Titanic's Engines Reimagined in MOC Building Block
The Titanic's reciprocating triple expansion steam engine was a colossal feat of engineering, measuring 19 meters in length and weighing 731 tonnes. With a total output of 15,000 horsepower, it was driven by steam generated by an impressive 29 boilers and 159 coal-fired furnaces. The boilers, towering at three stories high, could hold a staggering 49.28 tonnes of water each.
To further enhance efficiency, excess steam from the reciprocating engines was redirected to steam turbine engines located at the stern. The power generated by these engines propelled the ship's three propellers, ensuring its majestic voyage.
