You know that I like to take a design which pleases me and begin to imagine how I would have done that same project, and for which purpose.

My guess is that since the Marconi service was also available to passengers, it was easier to have the shack placed in an area accessible to the passengers, so as to keep them away from crew-only areas like the bridge.

This latter one differed from her two "sisters" in that the steam boilers were heated (and superheated) burning fuel oil instead of coal, an enormous advantage. ...
