From a German book called ''Zur See'' (''At sea''), first published in 1895. This space I believe the Norwegians called ''topp-rista''. (''the top grating''? - I was not often in the engine room.)

Stein,
There are:
Top Plates - Cylinder heads and fuel injectors (motor ship).
Middle Plates - Local engine controls, air manifolds, forced draft fan for low speed operation (no pressure for the tubochargers, again motor ships).
Bottom Plates - Crankcase doors, bilge/double bottom tank tops, sea water pumps, etc. (motor ship).

Most auxiliary equipment is also located on, or around, the middle plates: Compressors, auxiliary engines ("gennys"), sewage plant, evaporator, fridge plant, etc.etc.

All the above associated with a "cathedral engine"!

Rgds.
Dave

Dificult to find those words in an ordinary dictionary. But from norwegian sailor reminiscences on the net I find from top downwards: "topprist", "mellomrist" and "manÝverdÝrk", the last word translating as maneuver-deck or perhaps operating deck. Which does perhaps not echo your engine controls on the middle plate?

Well, I can't see much of a diesel engine in this fantasy picture. There are many references to a steam engine. It looks like Jule Verne's, but you can see the gate control and the filling valve to the valve box and indicated cylinders of an expansion engine. Above a huge skylight and on the upper deck the telegraph which indicates a ship operation.
It is just a machine that only works in a drug fantasy.

The search was for the naming of the platforms around a vertical engine.

There seem to be different definitions of the different shipping nations

Could be control platform of a paddle engine (triple expansion diagonal?) though controls look a bit primitive. Engineer operating main steam valve; reversing lever to his left. One of the crank bearings of the (athwart ship) paddle shaft visible on left (railed off). Cylinders would be under platform?
