The Great Eastern carried a suit of sail, but I don't think it was ever used.  She was, in many respects, a transitional design.  Sail and steam, paddles and a screw.  Titanic was another transitional design.  Three screws, two powered by the biggest reciprocating steam engines ever designed for a ship, with the center screw driven by one of the first large marine turbines, using the low-pressure exhaust from the piston engines. It was a cool idea, that salvaged some power that would otherwise have been dumped into the condensers.

P.S.: Anybody know how to tell Firefox's spellchecker to use U.S. conventions?  It wants to see that "center" spelled "centre."

Titanic sank, The Great Eastern was broken up. The Great Western was also broken up; but the Great Britain still survives today.

I think the Great Britain was owned by the Great Western Railway.
