Anniversary of sinking of Titanic next year...

Postby Canadian Jayne » Fri Dec 09, 2011 4:50 am

I was doing some research on the rail system in
Ontario since alot of ancestors travelled via rail
back in the day.
Canadians were actually affected by the
sinking of the Titanic.
I wonder why a Canadian story has never
been done.
I wonder!

The only theory that makes sense to me is the possibility of Leo DiCaprio getting sucked into the ocean and being washed up on the beach in the beginning of Inception

But it is said that the Olympic could holm
more tonnage than the Titanic so wouldn't
you be able to compare that to what is left
of the wreck? Is there any way to compare
the promenade change if there is any physical
evidence from what is underwater?

taken from Wkipedia re Olympic - Refit

"At the same time, alterations and additions to her passenger cabins were carried out on B Deck which necessitated deleting her B Deck promenades - one of the few features that separated her from her sister ship. With these changes, Olympic's gross tonnage rose to 46,359 tons, 31 tons larger than Titanic's."
