Mel: While I've been on the MISS Q and the AM Q under way, I've never been in the MISS Q engine room. I heard that it was too small to host visitors, having low head room. I've been in the DQ engine room but never on her while under way...and, never in the lower engine room. I note that the DQ has a single cylinder steam pumping engine down below. Looks to me like it may circulates non-contact cooling river water through the condenser. I have a similar engine out of the Peters Cartridge Company that ran the forced draft fan under the boiler room. A 7" x 7" engine, it too does not have reversing capability, has closed crankcase with internal oiling system and has a piston valve. Cap'n Walnut.
