It’s over 100 years since the Titanic’s final, fateful journey. But tucked away in engineering journals dating even further back are some fascinating details about how the ship was built — and in this video, Engineering Guy Bill Hammack casts a thoughtful eye over them.

Having sifted through images and information held in copies of The Engineer published between 1909 and 1911, Bill describes the building of the Titanic and its twin the Olympic. He covers everything from their build in dry docks, how their engines, steering mechanism and propellers worked, and what did for the ships in the end. It’s a fascinating 11 minutes. [Engineering Guy]
