Pity as she and sisters were quite classy vessels for General Steam when built.

Ruptured Fuel Pipe spraying fine M.G.O. all over the Engineroom is usually the cause?
Bridge Control, nobody in the Engineroom using their Ears, Nose and Eyes to look for any sign trouble?, Woof up she goes when the spray hits the hot stuff, Ship C.T.L. Hopefully the Crew were all ok?
