where I've spent some time with The Lovely Naoko. First are some huge American Peerless hot-water rads in the downtown train station. The pipes seem small for such big rads, and don't look like they've been changed- this may have been an early forced system:



And here, one of several small-tube rads on the RCMP (that's Royal Canadian Mounted Police) St. Roch, which patrolled the Arctic waters. It is now in permanent dry-dock in the Maritime Museum. This vessel is diesel-powered, and I believe the rads get hot water from the engine's cooling system. The wheelhouse and main cabin have rads, but the crew quarters has a stove for heat:



Following is a diagram of the boat:

    I believe the old CP station is hooked up to Central Heat/Creative Energy's distributed steam system-probably steam to HW HX's somewhere and pumped from there?

    Could be. I didn't ask for a mechanical room tour- didn't know anyone there, and these days it would probably be viewed as an attempted security breach :o
